- In case you missed it last week, the Detroit Lions' official site has video of the feature on Calvin Johnson from NFL Network's top 100 countdown.
- Johnson said last week on NFL Network that the Lions are "definitely in a place" where they feel like they could make a run at winning a Super Bowl.
- After having a lot of success running behind Jed Collins in New Orleans during the 2011 preseason, Joique Bell is glad that Collins is now on the Lions.
- Here's one person's 2014 stat projection for Golden Tate:
I currently have Golden Tate at 70-982-8 for 2014 #FFProjections. This would be a career high for Tate.— Matt Waldman (@MattWaldman) July 10, 2014
- Defensive end Spencer Nealy, who spent part of the 2013 offseason with the Lions and now plays for the Minnesota Vikings, has been suspended for four games for violating the NFL's "policy on performance enhancing substances."
- The Andre Johnson situation in Houston is starting to get really interesting.
