Tuesday Notes: Jared DeVries Officially Returns to Lions

  • Jared DeVries officially re-signed yesterday and started working out with the team again.  His hope is to be the starting left defensive end in 2010.
  • Louisiana-Lafayette defensive end Hall Davis is going to visit the Lions today and tomorrow.
  • USC offensive tackle Charles Brown visited the Lions last week.
  • The Free Press is reporting that Kam Chancellor, a safety from Virginia Tech, also visited the Lions last week.
  • Look out for a visit tracker in the coming days to take a look at all of the players the Lions have hosted so far.
  • Speculation suggested that the 2010 NFL schedule would be out tonight, but that doesn't appear likely.  The schedule special on ESPN2 is no longer in the guide listings, and considering no announcement has been made by the NFL, I think it's safe to say we will have to continue waiting.  You would imagine that the schedule would be released at least somewhat in advance of the draft so there is time to digest it, but who knows at this point.
  • 16 players are now expected to attend the NFL Draft.  The following is a list of the latest players to accept their invites to NYC: Oklahoma QB Sam Bradford, Florida CB Joe Haden, Clemson RB C.J. Spiller, Wake Forest CB Brandon Ghee, Iowa OT Bryan Bulaga, Texas DT Lamarr Houston, Georgia Tech WR Demaryius Thomas, and Cal RB Jahvid Best.  A lot of these players aren't expected to be picked until the second round, but I guess the NFL wants players to be there on Friday night as well as Thursday.
  • Big Mike Williams is going to try out for the Seahawks.  Normally I would just completely write off BMW's chances of getting back into the league, but considering his former college coach is now the head man in Seattle, anything is possible.
  • The Jaguars have reportedly taken Dez Bryant off their draft board.
  • Santonio Holmes was promptly suspended four games after he was traded to the Jets.
