Friday Notes: Lions Not "Locking In" on Stafford?

  • Tom Kowalski reports that the Lions have not made a decision about who the top will be just yet.  Serious contract talks haven't happened yet, and until they do (expected to begin next week), a clear No. 1 target won't emerge.
  • Lions players seem impressed with Daunte Culpepper.
  • Jordan Dizon will likely be a backup at outside linebacker.
  • George Foster thinks he can contend for a starting spot.  I obviously would have to disagree, as Foster has already had a chance to start on multiple occasions and lost his job both times.
  • Travis Fisher also believes he can secure a starting job, even though the Lions added a couple players to the secondary during the offseason.
  •'s latest mock draft has the Lions selecting Jason Smith and Robert Ayers.
  • The 2009 NFL schedule will be announced at 7 p.m. ET on Tuesday.  I'll keep everyone updated on the Lions' schedule as it comes out.
  • In case you haven't already, check out SB Nation's new Pistons blog, Motown String Music.
