- Free-agent defensive tackle Derek Landri, who has played for the Jacksonville Jaguars (because of course), Carolina Panthers, Philadelphia Eagles and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, worked out for the Detroit Lions on Tuesday.
- Golden Tate felt like his visit to the White House last week was a "closure moment" for his time with the Seattle Seahawks, as it gave him a chance to say goodbye to his former teammates.
- After he returned from the White House, Tate threw out the first pitch at a Detroit Tigers game. He also got a chance to take batting practice with the Tigers, and he actually hit a home run. (Tate played baseball for a couple years at Notre Dame, and he was drafted by both the Arizona Diamondbacks and San Francisco Giants.)
- Darius Slay has gotten a lot of advice this offseason from Hall of Fame cornerback Rod Woodson, who watched all of Slay's film from the 2013 season.
- Sam Martin has adjusted his technique on punts and kickoffs in order to lessen the wear and tear on his body.
- SB Nation's first 64-player watch list is out for the 2015 NFL Draft.
