Lions notes: Post-draft salary cap, Wallace Gilberry and more

Today's notes highlight several topics, including an in-depth look at the Lions' salary cap as it stands right now.

Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports
"A couple of former Lions officially found new jobs Monday. Defensive end Jason Jones signed with Miami, rejoining Ndamukong Suh. Offensive tackle Tyrus Thompson, who was waived last week, signed with New Orleans. Also, offensive tackle Al Bond, who was a UDFA with the Lions in camp last year, signed with Washington."

  • Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press lists his top five players left in free agency. Not all of them would make sense for Detroit, but there are a couple that could help the Lions if they were to kick the tires:

"Glasgow was taken with the idea he can play both guard and center, but won’t be given any starting job without earning it. This is a stark contrast from the way things were run under former GM Martin Mayhew, who wasn’t great at building depth. The Lions have had no shortage of playmakers over the past few seasons, but as coaches say, the games are won and lost in the trenches."

  • It's back to school for the Lions' rookies. Poor Miles Killebrew...he just can't escape it.
