  • Football is kind of popular in Detroit, you guys. UPDATE: The national ratings for NFL Network were quite massive as well. (Thanks, Johnny Manziel.)
  • Yes, it's only the preseason, but this is a pretty interesting stat:
  • Reminder: The Detroit Lions' final open practice of training camp is scheduled for 2 p.m. ET on Wednesday (weather permitting, of course).

  • Here are the details on the Lions' contracts with Drayton Florence and Nate Ness, who both joined the team last week.
  • This story about Giorgio Tavecchio, Dominic Raiola and coffee is pretty funny.
