NFL: Arizona Cardinals at Detroit Lions Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

The PODcast is back onto Detroit Lions football this week, and there is surprisingly a lot to talk about. It may be the offseason, but we’re just hitting our stride.

First, the PODcast crew discussed the latest with Golden Tate extension talk. Tate says he wants to retire in Detroit, but is he willing to sign a discounted contract to do so or is he just maintaining leverage in negotiations? We discuss what a fair price is for both sides.

Then it’s onto the big stuff: OTAs. The Lions begin practice this week, and we want to know a lot of things about this team. Ryan, Chris and myself discuss the things we’re most interested in seeing over the next month.

And finally, finally, we talk about the Lions’ undrafted free agent class.
