Lions notes: Matthew Stafford, helmet rankings, more

Lions notes looks at Matthew Stafford, NFL helmet rankings and much more.

Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports
  • ESPN's Ron Jaworski has Matthew Stafford 16th in his 2014 quarterback rankings.

  • The Detroit Lions came in 18th in Cincy Jungle's NFL helmet rankings. Why wasn't their helmet design ranked higher? Cincy Jungle is not a fan of the Lions' use of the color black: "Go back to the blue facemask and the blue and white stripe. Get rid of the black."

  • How are players paid during training camp? Dave Birkett has the answer:
  • EA Sports put together a video of NFL rookies (including Eric Ebron) reacting to their Madden 15 ratings. It's pretty great.

  • Former Lions head coach Steve Mariucci is coming to town next month for training camp.
  • The Jacksonville Jaguars' new scoreboards are pretty amazing.
