- Martin Mayhew reviewed the Detroit Lions' 2014 draft class in an interview with the team's official site.
- Here's a recap of where the Lions' 2015 salary cap stands right now:
With all future deals updated and 2014 cap carryover included, I have Lions with $125.02 million committed to top 51 for 2015 cap.— Justin Rogers (@Justin_Rogers) January 13, 2015
- Rotoworld has released its 2015 free agent rankings. Of note for the Lions is that they have three of the top seven interior defensive linemen (Ndamukong Suh is No. 1, Nick Fairley is No. 2 and C.J. Mosley is No. 7).
- Daniel Jeremiah has the Lions taking Florida State cornerback P.J. Williams in his first 2015 NFL mock draft.
- Presented without comment:
The #Lions had no players on the PFWA All-Rookie team. Aaron Donald the defensive ROTY, Odell Beckham Jr. the offensive ROTY.— Michael Rothstein (@mikerothstein) January 13, 2015
- This sounds like it could be pretty interesting:
Fascinating. The @NFL will host on March 22 in AZ the first ever NFL Veteran Combine, according to a memo sent today. It’s for veterans FAs.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) January 15, 2015
From Matt Birk’s memo on the veteran combine, veteran FAs will participate in position-specific drills, timing and testing for 32 teams.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) January 15, 2015
- Continuity is pretty rare for NFL teams these days:
Worth noting: only 2 NFL teams have had the same head coach, offensive & defensive coordinator since 2012: the Packers and Patriots.— Field Yates (@FieldYates) January 12, 2015
