Lions notes: Jim Caldwell, Chris Greenwood, more

Lions notes looks at Jim Caldwell, Chris Greenwood injury news and much more.

Leon Halip
  • In order to better get to know the players on his team, Jim Caldwell is taking each of the position groups on the Detroit Lions roster out to dinner.

  • Speaking of Caldwell, his approach to coaching does not include "standing out there in the middle of the field screaming and yelling, acting like it's all about me." That basically sounds like the opposite of what Jim Schwartz did at times.

  • At this point in the offseason, Caldwell believes the depth chart "should be looked at more as a rep chart." In other words, the Lions may be rotating players based on a certain order, but that order is far from a permanent thing, especially in May.

  • The Lions are planning to operate at a faster pace on offense because "that pace puts pressure on the defense."

  • Why has Chris Greenwood not been taking part in the Lions' OTAs? Dave Birkett reports that Greenwood's absence is related to hernia surgery, which he originally underwent a couple years ago.

  • Eric Ebron views himself as a tight end rather than a wide receiver, although he admitted that he's "not a traditional tight end."

  • Ebron is going to take part in the NFLPA Rookie Premiere later this week.

  • The Lions' official site posted a cool video from last week's "Taste of the Lions" event.
