- Free agent linebacker Angelo Crowell visited the Lions on Wednesday. Crowell previously played for the Bills and was a full-time starter in 2007 before spending last season on the injured reserve due to knee surgery. Crowell visited the Buccaneers on Monday and has the Eagles and Rams interested in him as well.
- The Lions and 20 other NFL teams were in Kalamazoo on Wednesday to check out safety Louis Delmas work out at Western Michigan's pro day.
- Offensive tackle Andre Smith worked out for scouts at Alabama's pro day, and his stock is continuing to fall. Smith didn't impress scouts with his workout and gave off the impression that he still wasn't taking the offseason program seriously. Now some are saying he could fall all the way to the third-round. That is just unbelievable considering he was being talked about as the top pick of the draft right up until the combine. Now it seems like teams don't want to go near Smith due to a lack of effort and care on his part.
- The Panthers released cornerback Ken Lucas. Lucas blocked a potential trade that would have sent him to Detroit back when free agency first got underway, so the Panthers released him for cap reasons. I'll go out on a limb and predict that he doesn't sign with the Lions.
