Lions notes: Patrick Edwards re-signed to practice squad

Lions notes looks at Patrick Edwards, some tryout news and much more.

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports
  • On Tuesday, the Detroit Lions brought back wide receiver Patrick Edwards by signing him to their practice squad. Edwards, who has spent a lot of time with the Lions over the last couple of years, was most recently let go by the team during the final round of cuts this year. To make room for him, defensive tackle Derrick Hopkins was released.

  • The Lions brought in several players for workouts on Tuesday:
  • Former Lions wide receiver Kevin Ogletree, who was released by the team last month, has signed with the New York Giants.

  • Here's a nice stat: Since going 0-6 in the NFC North in 2012, the Lions are 6-2 in divisional games.

  • This is a pretty interesting stat:

  • Golden Tate thinks very highly of the Lions defense.
  • Calvin Johnson may not have been able to play last week, but he remained involved in the game by doing some coaching on the sideline:
  • The announcers for Sunday's game between the Lions and New Orleans Saints are going to be Chris Myers and Ronde Barber.

  • Speaking of announcers, after his pretty awful debut and subsequent unprofessional behavior on Twitter, Mike Goldberg was pulled from his FOX broadcasting assignment for this weekend. Amazingly, he was set to announce another Minnesota Vikings game, but FOX decided to replace him with Tim Brando.

  • Havard Rugland has released a new trick-shot video as part of an ad campaign for Gillette.
