Lions notes: Joique Bell, OTA news, more

Lions notes looks at Joique Bell, news from Day 1 of OTAs and much more.

  • This is good news:
  • Welcome back, football.
  • Speaking of that photo gallery, this was a nice discovery by Michael Rothstein: That's Manny Ramirez at left guard and Travis Swanson at center, to be specific. My guess is that, much like in the past with Lions rookies, Laken Tomlinson will start out as the No. 2 left guard but will be the starter by the time the regular season rolls around.

  • After returning to the Lions on Tuesday, James Ihedigbo spoke with the team's official site.

  • Ameer Abdullah wrote about his first day of OTAs.

  • Abdullah will be the only member of the Lions' 2015 draft class at the NFLPA Rookie Premiere this year.

  • Another Lions defender will be featured on NFL Network's top 100 countdown this week.
  • Congratulations to Dan Orlovsky and Glover Quin:
  • Meanwhile, in former Lions news:
  • It sounds like the Houston Texans will be on Hard Knocks this year.

  • Finally, this about sums up Detroit sports so far this year:
