Scanning the Savanna

Scanning the Savanna is a daily feature that brings fresh Detroit Lions and NFL related content to your fingertips each morning. Grab a cup of coffee and let’s scan the savanna together.

Many nicknames have been thrown around for the Lions new dominant D-Line and we have fallen in love with THE BRUTE SQUAD. Here are our picks for nicknames as well.

Why is a team built around Matthew Stafford protecting him with a left tackle fans perceive as less-than-ideal? Why is Calvin Johnson—due $14 million in 2012 and free agency in 2013—left hanging in the wind as this team finally has a ray of hope? Why is Dominic Raiola still in the NFL?

All of these questions and more need to be answered as soon as possible if the Lions are going to have continued success.

The Lions defensive end signed a one-year tender from the club Thursday and made his first appearance at practice along with some other Detroit players who were restricted from working out with the team until the NFL players ratified the new CBA.

It’s all in the past now for Avril.
