- Pro Football Focus' Top 101 Players of 2015 list continued on Wednesday, listing players 26-50. Darius Slay came in at No. 44, currently the third-highest cornerback on the list with 25 players left to go. As of now, the only other Detroit Lions player on the list is Calvin Johnson. Tomorrow, we'll see if Ezekiel Ansah made the top tier.

- Detroit's new long snapper Jimmy Landes made a snapping trick-shot video and actually got the idea from Johnny Manziel.
- Apparently, the Lions rookies got a history lesson on the franchise on Tuesday. Hopefully they sugar-coated some things.
- Good on you, Ameer Abdullah, Haloti Ngata, Brandon Pettigrew and Herman Moore:
