Lions notes looks at Detroit's third jersey, the possibility of the team adding cheerleaders and much more.

  • Detroit Lions president Tom Lewand said on Wednesday that the team has not yet decided if it is going to wear its third jersey this year. Lewand did say that the Lions' third jersey is still the throwback look, so they aren't about to introduce new alternate uniforms or anything like that.

  • Also according to Lewand, the Lions aren't about to introduce cheerleaders, and it doesn't sound like they have any plans to change their stance on not having them.

  • Lewand did not end up meeting with Ndamukong Suh's agent at the NFL owners meetings this week. Lewand and Suh's agent have already been in contact, so this doesn't seem like a very big deal.

  • The details are out for James Ihedigbo's two-year deal with the Lions:
  • Glover Quin was quite pleased to hear that Ihedigbo signed with Detroit.
  • Here are the details on the one-year deal Andre Fluellen got from the Lions:
  • Larry Warford led all Lions players in performance-based pay for the 2013 season.

  • Here are a couple random tweets from this week's NFL owners meetings:
  • Why didn't the Lions re-sign Willie Young? They weren't willing to match the offer that he got from the Chicago Bears.

  • Speaking of the Bears, they just signed defensive end Jared Allen to a four-year deal worth $32 million. So much for him leaving the NFC North.
