Lions notes: Ndamukong Suh, LaAdrian Waddle, Corey Hilliard, more

Lions notes looks at Ndamukong Suh, who will start at right tackle in 2014 and much more.

  • Why do the Detroit Lions want to sign Ndamukong Suh to a long-term deal? Perhaps this will answer any questions you may have:
  • Martin Mayhew feels comfortable with the prospect of LaAdrian Waddle or Corey Hilliard starting at right tackle for the Lions next season, but he's not willing to close the door on potentially making an upgrade at the position. The only scenario where I could see them upgrading is if one of the top offensive tackles in the draft falls to them at No. 10, but even then, it's hard to imagine that they would spend a first-round pick on a position so low on their list of needs.

  • What will the Lions do with the 10th overall pick? You can rule out kicker and punter, but that's it. (Insert long snapper joke here.)

  • Keep this in mind when thinking about potential additions at outside linebacker this offseason:
  • This just about sums up the ridiculousness of the concern over how Matthew Stafford wears his hat:
  • Based on last Thursday's news about the NFL salary cap jumping up to $130 million for 2014, here are the new projected numbers for franchise tags and restricted free agent tenders:
  • Soon-to-be free agent Hakeem Nicks has joined Jay-Z's Roc Nation Sports for marketing, but Pro Football Talk reports that CAA will actually handle his contract. There has been speculation that Suh could end up having a similar setup.
