  • It seems that both the New York Giants and New York Jets may be interested in Brandon Pettigrew, who is set to become a free agent at 4 p.m. ET on Tuesday. Pettigrew, by the way, recently said that he is hoping to be "utilized" for both his run blocking and receiving abilities. He doesn't want to be limited to just one of those things.

  • Here's the latest on restricted free agent Joique Bell's contract situation with the Detroit Lions:
  • It turns out that Ndamukong Suh will be represented in his contract negotiations by both CAA and Roc Nation Sports after all.

  • I can't say that I expected Jordon Dizon's name to come up in a tweet about the Lions' salary cap situation, but that's exactly what happened on Monday:
  • Jason Hanson said that he feels some guilt over not being able to win a championship for William Clay Ford.

  • MLive's Kyle Meinke put together a good piece on Ford and his tenure as owner of the Lions.

  • Rotoworld ranked the NFL's general managers, and the Lions' Martin Mayhew came in 25th.

  • For the gamblers out there, the Lions' projected win total for 2014 is currently set at 8.0. It's tough to predict considering we're still so far away from the season, but would you take the over or under on that right now?

  • Sammy Watkins posted another picture for Lions fans to dream about.
    (He posted this last week, in case you missed it.)

  • Defensive end Michael Bennett re-signed with the Seattle Seahawks on Monday for four years and $28.5 million. It turns out that he turned down more money from the Chicago Bears and another team to stay in Seattle. I'm guessing the Minnesota Vikings also aren't overly thrilled with this news considering what they gave defensive end Everson Griffen to re-sign:
