- MLive's Justin Rogers gives us an extremely in-depth look at the Detroit Lions' salary cap post-draft, including player salaries, top-51 contracts and dead money. As it stands right now, the Lions have just under $15 million in cap space. Not too shabby considering the shape they've been in over the past several years.
"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."
- If you haven't already been introduced to newly signed vet, Wallace Gilberry, the boys over at Cincy Jungle give us their "exit interview" and do a nice job of summing up his time with the Bengals. He has a legitimate shot at competing for the left end spot on the defensive line.
- 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:
There aren't many difference makers left in free agency, but teams in need of help should consider these 5 options https://t.co/ruwVPLLKBw— Dave Birkett (@davebirkett) May 17, 2016
- The boys at SideLion Report give us their scouting report on Graham Glasgow.
"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.
