Lions Notes: Nate Burleson Talks Up Aaron Berry

  • Ndamukong Suh is well aware that 2012 is "very important" for him. He called 2010 a "good year" for him personally and 2011 an "indifferent year." Now, with Suh set to enter his third season in the league, he sees an opportunity to "have an outstanding year." He did add the caveat that how he does personally doesn't matter all that much because "it's a team game." He's right, but an outstanding year for Suh would be good news for the Lions.
  • Nate Burleson had high praise for Aaron Berry when asked about him on Tuesday. I think a big part of the reason why the Lions didn't feel the need to pursue a free-agent cornerback other than Jacob Lacey is because they are confident in Berry's abilities.
  • According to Anwar Richardson, the NFL is "still reviewing" the run-ins with the law that Mikel Leshoure, Nick Fairley and Johnny Culbreath had this offseason.
  • Speaking of Leshoure, he spoke about his offseason "mistakes" on Monday and said, "You live and you learn."
  • Roger Goodell said on Tuesday that the NFL wants stadiums to be equipped with Wi-Fi for fans. I wish more sports leagues/teams would do this, because at events it can often be extremely difficult to get a decent signal for Internet on your phone. At Michigan Stadium, for example, it's rare to have a cell phone with service because there are so many people at games and the towers just get overloaded.
  • Goodell also said on Tuesday that a decision has not yet been made about the 2013 Pro Bowl and whether or not it will be held. If there is a Pro Bowl next year, it will be played in Hawaii or New Orleans, the site of the 2013 Super Bowl.
