- John Clayton thinks the Lions "will be in the hunt" for safety Oshiomogho Atogwe, who will become an unrestricted free agent later today if the Rams don't increase the value of his tender to almost $7 million or if they don't work out a long-term deal. The initial offer he was tendered was worth only $1.226 million for one year, and today is the deadline for that offer to increase to nearly $7 million. If the Rams decide they don't want to do that and can't work out a long-term deal with Atogwe, then he will simply become an unrestricted free agent.
- Despite a sore hamstring, Eric King made some nice plays in one of last week's OTAs.
