Lions notes: DeAndre Levy, Cassius Vaughn, more

Lions notes looks at DeAndre Levy, Cassius Vaughn and much more.

Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports
  • This week, DeAndre Levy was unveiled as the No. 66 player in NFL Network's countdown of the top 100 players of 2015. This is actually seven spots lower than last year, which seems pretty ridiculous considering how good Levy was in 2014. In any case, the Detroit Lions now have four players in the top 100.

  • Former Lions cornerback Cassius Vaughn, who spent the 2014 season in Detroit, signed with the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday. Since we're past the compensatory picks window, this signing won't have any potential effect on the Lions' 2016 draft.

  • According to the Detroit Free Press, no decision has been made yet by the Lions about if they will have a new alternate uniform this year.

  • A few different offensive players have talked about how they are much more comfortable in Joe Lombardi's offense this year compared to last year. Without having to worry about the growing pains of a new scheme, the Lions were able to just hit the ground running this year.

  • According to ESPN, Matt Prater is concerned that the NFL's decision to make extra points more difficult might be a sign that they are trying to eventually "weed kicking out of the game completely." It honestly wouldn't surprise me if that's the case, and I can certainly understand why Prater would be concerned about that considering this is his livelihood.

  • The Minnesota Vikings have officially put their foot down in the Adrian Peterson saga. I guess that settles that.

  • The Houston Texans are officially the focus of this year's Hard Knocks. This seems like a solid choice after last year's boring season with the Atlanta Falcons.

  • It appears that at least one player will be in the Supplemental Draft this year.
