Friday Notes: Tom Lewand Chats Over Lunch With Ndamukong Suh's Agent

  • Although there has been talk that Kevin Smith will start training camp on the PUP list, Jim Schwartz wouldn't be surprised if he was ready to go by then.
  • Tom Lewand had lunch with Roosevelt Barnes, Ndamukong Suh's lead agent. A deal still is not imminent, but at least the two sides are starting to talk.
  • Last season we all got to see just how fiery Jim Schwartz can be on the sidelines, so imagine what he would have done if he had been involved in the Armando Galarraga/Jim Joyce situation earlier this week.
    "Oh God, no. I would've been thrown out,'' he said. "I would've caused the Detroit police probably a lot of problems because I wouldn't have gone easily.
    Like Schwartz, I would have had a tough time being as classy as Jim Leyland and Armando Galarraga have been throughout this whole mess.
  • Martin Mayhew has no comment on Oshiomogho Atogwe, but Jonathan Wade, his former teammate, shared his thoughts on the free agent safety.
  • Louis Delmas wants to be a leader.
