Brandon Pettigrew recently told the Free Press that the tight end role in the Detroit Lions' new offense is "definitely a little bit different." Pettigrew explained that the tight ends are "moving around a lot more, splitting out a little bit more, just doing a lot of different things and the role is different for everybody."
- This isn't a surprise considering he is one, but Joseph Fauria thinks tight ends are underpaid given how much the position has evolved over the years. Needless to say, he's on Jimmy Graham's side in the franchise tag dispute with the NFL.
- Speaking of positions evolving, Barry Sanders recently talked about how the running back position has changed over the years.
- Former Lions defensive backs coach Tim Walton, who served as the St. Louis Rams' defensive coordinator last season, got a pretty awful review from cornerback Cortland Finnegan, who called Walton's system "atrocious." Ouch.
- The auction featuring various items from the Silverdome netted the owners of the stadium around $500,000.
