Lions Notes: Tim Walton Discusses His Promotion

  • According to Tim Twentyman, it doesn't sound like there will be any design changes to the Detroit Lions' uniform despite the Nike switch happening this year. The main change will be with the material of the jerseys.
  • Lions secondary/third-down package coach Tim Walton talked with the Lions' official site about the promotion he received this week. He said he hopes his next step is to become a full-time defensive coordinator and then eventually move on to being a head coach.
  • Tom Lewand said earlier this week that Ndamukong Suh wasn't as productive, but he was just as effective in 2011 as he was in 2010.
  • Suh will be the grand marshal of the NASCAR race in Phoenix on March 4.
  • Lewand was asked directly about Cortland Finnegan and avoided the question in order to avoid more tampering issues.
  • One more note from Lewand ... He said that this offseason the Lions are trying to become stronger at every position other than quarterback.
  • Mike Mayock shared his thoughts on the Lions during a conference call earlier this week.
  • Mike O'Hara has an interesting piece on the Lions' injury situation last season.

  • NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is going to make around $20 million a year by the end of this decade. And I thought players were often overpaid.
  • The new CBA does not include the possibility of a "poison pill" being used with offer sheets for restricted/tagged free agents, according to Pro Football Talk.
  • Randy Moss is coming back. And before you ask, the Lions should not even consider signing him. No way.
  • One-time Lions safety Marquand Manuel is now an assistant for the Seattle Seahawks.
