- 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 said he called Sexton to cancel meeting this week because the NFL meetings is not conducive to their business.— Kyle Meinke (@kmeinke) March 25, 2014
- The details are out for James Ihedigbo's two-year deal with the Lions:
Ihedigbo will earn $1.525 M in year one. $1.625 M in year two if he sticks. Total: $3.15 M for two seasons, $750 K guaranteed.— Adam Caplan (@caplannfl) March 27, 2014
- Glover Quin was quite pleased to hear that Ihedigbo signed with Detroit.
I wake up and see we signed @JamesIhedigbo !! Welcome to the D!!— Glover Quin Jr (@GloverQuin27) March 25, 2014
- Here are the details on the one-year deal Andre Fluellen got from the Lions:
Don't remember if this has been reported elsewhere, but Andre Fluellen's #Lions contract is a $570K cap hit & $730K base salary. No bonuses— Michael Rothstein (@mikerothstein) March 26, 2014
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:
Most fit NFL team: Detroit Lions. HC Jim Caldwell, GM Martin Mayhew, Tom Lewand all in hotel fitness center at 5:40 am.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 25, 2014
Jim Caldwell spent the first 6:35 of his sitdown with Detroit writers talking about how terrible he is at golf. Truly hilarious stuff.— Kyle Meinke (@kmeinke) March 25, 2014
- 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.
