Lions Notes: Detroit Wants To Bring Back Bobby Carpenter, Turk McBride

  • Martin Mayhew and Lions scouts are getting ready to head down to Orlando for the East-West Shrine Game. The game will be held next Saturday at 4 p.m. and can be seen on NFL Network.
  • Nate Burleson has little doubt there will be a lockout.
  • Bobby Carpenter said that his agent heard from the Lions and the team wants to bring him back. Carpenter would be willing to sign an extension, and he thinks he can compete for a starting job with the Lions next season.
  • The Lions also want to bring back Turk McBride.
  • The top ten of Mel Kiper's updated draft board is as follows: Auburn defensive tackle Nick Fairley, Clemson defensive end Da'Quan Bowers, Georgia wide receiver A.J. Green, LSU cornerback Patrick Peterson, Alabama defensive end Marcell Dareus, Nebraska cornerback Prince Amukamara, North Carolina defensive end Robert Quinn, Missouri quarterback Blaine Gabbert, Texas A&M linebacker Von Miler and Purdue defensive end Ryan Kerrigan. After Peterson and Amukamara, not a single cornerback is in Kiper's top 25.
  • The Lions' strength coaches are holding a clinic on March 5, and 100 people can sign up to attend it (for a price of $90).
  • I have no clue who this person is on Pride of Detroit, but someone with the picks set name of JustWinBaby won the POD Bowl Pick'em.
