Lions notes: Jim Caldwell's contract, rave reviews for Joe Lombardi, more

Lions notes looks at Jim Caldwell's contract, the rave reviews offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi has been getting and much more.

  • The financial details of Detroit Lions head coach Jim Caldwell's contract have leaked out:
  • Several people had some really positive things to say about new Lions offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi on Tuesday. Take a look: MLive has a recap of more of the reaction to the Lions' decision to hire Lombardi.

  • New Orleans Saints tight ends coach Terry Malone had this to say about what Lombardi's offense will look like in Detroit: I like the sound of that.

  • Dave Birkett reports that the Lions were scheduled to interview former Tennessee Titans secondary coach Brett Maxie for their secondary coach job on Tuesday night. (On a related note, the Cincinnati Bengals hired Vance Joseph as their defensive backs coach. Joseph was believed to be a candidate for the Lions' secondary coach job.)

  • The first ever Pro Bowl draft was on Tuesday night, and Ndamukong Suh was apparently the first pick.
  • This week's ESPN The Magazine features Calvin Johnson and Eminem on the cover:
  • Scott Linehan is one of four candidates to replace Caldwell as the Baltimore Ravens' offensive coordinator.

  • The Miami Dolphins apparently didn't send any coaches to the Senior Bowl. Good luck with that, Miami.
