  • The Detroit Lions aren't going to tender an offer to restricted free agent Josh Bynes, according to Dave Birkett. That doesn't mean that Bynes won't be back, though. Birkett reports that the Lions do in fact want to re-sign Bynes; they just don't want to sign him to one of the RFA tenders. (This is what they did last year with Isa Abdul-Quddus when he was a restricted free agent. He was simply re-signed before free agency opened, meaning the Lions didn't have to deal with tendering him or anything like that.)

  • The Lions' other restricted free agent, Kellen Moore, is also unlikely to receive a tendered offer. However, the Lions also want him back, according to Birkett.

  • Speaking of quarterbacks, here's an update on Tajh Boyd, who worked out for the Lions earlier this week:
  • SB Nation's latest 2015 NFL mock draft has the Lions taking Washington cornerback Marcus Peters. There are some character concerns surrounding Peters, but he acknowledged his mistakes and took responsibility for his actions in a recent interview with USA Today.

  • Mel Kiper once again has the Lions taking Texas defensive tackle Malcom Brown in his latest mock draft.

  • I think it's safe to say that the Lions made the right move by signing Glover Quin instead of LaRon Landry back in 2013 given this news: Landry was reportedly scheduled to visit the Lions at one point, but he ultimately ended up in Indianapolis.

  • The Tampa Bay Buccaneers released quarterback Josh McCown on Wednesday.

  • This is just bizarre:
