Lions notes: Eric Ebron, Charles Tillman, more

Lions notes looks at Eric Ebron, Charles Tillman and much more.

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports
  • Eric Ebron is excited to get back on the football field and start his second season in the NFL.
  • Chicago Bears cornerback Charles Tillman is set to become a free agent next month, and he remains open to signing with the Detroit Lions. It seems unlikely that the Lions will have any interest in Tillman considering he will be 34 later this month and they've already got a 34-year-old corner to re-sign in Rashean Mathis, but you could certainly do a lot worse than Tillman from a depth standpoint.

  • Spotrac put together an NFL salary cap projection with the assumption that the cap will be set at $142 million. If that turns out to be the case, Spotrac projects that the Lions will have $12.1 million to work with after they set aside $4.7 million for their 2015 draft class.

  • The Lions finished ninth in's final power rankings of the 2014 season.

  • In honor of what happened at the end of the Super Bowl, Michael Rothstein broke down how the Lions fared on the 1-yard line in 2014. (Spoiler alert: Detroit did quite well.)

  • Awful Announcing put together a rundown of which teams could face the New England Patriots in the NFL's 2015 season opener.

  • This sure turned out to be a bad signing:
  • Former Lions fullback Jerome Felton is set to become a free agent this year after opting out of his deal with the Minnesota Vikings.
