- Detroit Lions general manager Bob Quinn was at Michigan International Speedway on Sunday to take in the local NASCAR event. While there, Quinn joined SiriusXM NASCAR to talk about Matthew Stafford’s contract negotiations:

- Saints left tackle Terron Armstead has a torn labrum and recently underwent surgery. Taylor Decker, who just suffered the same injury, reached out to Armstead to empathize with him:
Heartbroken when I found out I need surgery! No one is more frustrated than me after working so hard. I'll be back #WhoDatNation STRONGER!!— Terron Armstead (@T_Armstead72) June 16, 2017

- You know they’re have a great offseason when Chicago Bears fans are already talking about new head coaches for 2018. Windy City Gridiron addressed the latest rumor that Jeff Fisher may be a prime candidate for next season’s team.
- The Lions don’t return to work for over a month, but Darius Slay is ready now:
Man I'm too ready for the season #OnePride— Darius Slay (@_bigplayslay23) June 18, 2017
- Danny Kelly of The Ringer has an excellent article on why players like Greg Robinson—whom the Lions traded for last week—struggle to adjust to the NFL.
- If you were holding out hope for Eric Decker to land in Detroit, I’m sorry to say he signed elsewhere on Sunday:
