Lions notes: Detroit still seeking a salary cap expert

Friday's Lions notes covers Detroit's search for a new salary cap manager, Ziggy Ansah's week in Hawaii and a look ahead to the NFL Draft.

  • Though it appears the Detroit Lions lost out on Dolphins executive Dawn Aponte, they are still very much in the hunt to add a salary cap guru to their front office. Their latest candidate is Giants director of football operations Matt Harriss. 

  • Ezekiel Ansah is in Hawaii for the Pro Bowl and is already sharing his magic:
  • As mentioned on Thursday, Lions defensive backs are donating 36,000 bottles of water to help with Flint's water crisis. The movement is especially meaningful to Glover Quin, who had to live in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, waterless and powerless, over a decade ago. 

  • Reggie Ragland is a popular pick for the Lions' upcoming first-round draft pick, but he came into Senior Bowl week a little overweight. His excuse?
  • Speaking of the draft, the Lions will clearly be adding multiple defensive tackles at some point this offseason. Good news, the NFL Draft is full of them

  • The Oakland Raiders relocation saga continues:
  • It's official: The title "Pro Bowl player" is completely meaningless now:
  • The NFL announced a Super Bowl Golden Team -- essentially an all-star team full of players with the best Super Bowl performances of all time -- and shockingly, the Lions did not have one player make the cut. (Unless you count former Lion Desmond Howard).
