Lions notes: Glover Quin will reach 100 straight starts on Sunday

Also: could the Lions have early competition for a general manager hire?

  • Lions safety Glover Quin will reach a milestone come Sunday in the season finale against the Chicago Bears: the game will be his 100th consecutive start in the NFL, a streak that goes back to Week 14 of the 2009 season, when he was a member of the Houston TexansYou can see his top memories from that streak over on the Lions site.

  • Isa Abdul-Quddus will be a free agent at the end of the year, although he claims he would love to return to the Lions. Abdul-Quddus is 26 and comes to the end of his one year, $1.5 million contract after the season.

  • Not sure what's going on here, but okay! Jim Caldwell says he's not interested in defending himself, but as he needs to give something to the media, he kinda-sorta defends himself. Just another day when it comes to Caldwell and the Dungeon of Doom battling back and forth.

  • With Travis Swanson out for the Bears game, Manny Ramirez looks to be starting Sunday, just the second time he's started a game since the fifth week of the NFL season, and his first start all year at the center position.

  • There may be competition for general managers on the horizon. Rumors of Miami is that the Dolphins might be moving on from general manager Dennis Hickey. This would be startling if true, given that Hickey has only served for a single season. However, he was also not the first choice of Dolphins owner Stephen Ross. It could provide competition early on for the Lions in their own GM hunt.
