- The Detroit Lions had their eighth OTAs on Tuesday, and although it was closed to the media, certain news slipped through the cracks. Most significantly, Eric Ebron was back at practice after sitting a few sessions out with an undisclosed injury.
- Former Lions cornerback Rashean Mathis was also visiting practice on Tuesday. Mathis announced his retirement from the league back in February.

- Mathis wasn't the only person watching OTAs:

- Once again, the Lions released a photo album and highlights from Tuesday's practice. Riley Reiff continues to play right tackle while Taylor Decker remains at left tackle. Golden Tate also makes a sick catch at the 1:14 mark of the video:
- Pro Football Focus believes Darius Slay is next in line to get paid.
- As we previously mentioned, the NFL Twitter account was hacked on Tuesday, falsely announcing that Roger Goodell had died. Goodell had a good sense of humor about the whole ordeal:
