- Acme Packing Company, the Green Bay Packers' SB Nation blog, previewed the Lions 2015 season on Monday. They concluded the Lions will finish "roughly .500 this season".

- Former Lions defensive tackle Sammie Hill may need surgery just a few weeks after being taken off of the Tennessee Titans' PUP list.
