- Darius Slay looks like he's preparing to get a new contract:
- The Pro Football Writers of America (PFWA) released their All-NFL, All-NFC and All-AFC teams. Only one Detroit Lions player made any of those lists: Ezekiel Ansah was named to the All-NFC team.
- The Lions donated an undisclosed amount of money to help the water crisis in Flint.
- Thomas Rawls, current Seahawks running back, calls Flint his home. He's looking to do whatever he can to help the city and his family that still lives there:

- Daniel Jeremiah released his first mock draft and has the Lions selecting defensive tackle A'Shawn Robinson at 16 overall.
- It's kind of nice not having this contract weigh down the Lions' salary cap:
