  • The NFL Supplemental Draft is this week, but don’t expect to to see the Lions to do anything this Wednesday. At least that’s what MLive’s Andrew Kahn believes. He makes great points. Perhaps no point greater than “no team has selected any player since 2015.”

  • Who doesn’t love a good wedding? There’s tons of phenomenal finger foods, an open bar, and dancing all night. Lions receiver TJ Jones just got to experience all that joy over the weekend when he tied the knot. Congrats to TJ and his new bride.

  • One Lions fan hit the mother load when it comes to memorabilia. His grandfather, who once worked for Ford, handed down a football that’s signed by the 1957 NFL Champion Detroit Lions. I, for one, think he should give the football to the football gods as tribute. It can only lead to an immediate Super Bowl win for the Lions.

“Patricia headlined the head coaching changes this offseason entering Detroit after spending the past 14 seasons with the New England Patriots. Patricia is famous for his defensive mind as he spent the last six years as the defensive coordinator for the Patriots and brings a tougher mentality to the Lions this year. Patricia kept the offense roughly intact and retained offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter, who incumbent QB Matthew Stafford found success with last season.

Patricia’s tough mentality brought in hard-nosed, talented offensive linemen Frank Ragnow to anchor the interior of their offensive line while also adding LeGarrette Blount and Kerryon Johnson in the backfield after finishing last in yards per carry as a team last year.”
