Lions shouldn’t tag Suh
Mike Florio – Pro Football Talk
"During Friday’s (maybe Thursday’s, probably Friday’s) PFT Live on NBC Sports Radio, I harped repeatedly (to the undoubted delight of the audience) on the potential consequences of investing $26.8 million for one more year of service from Suh.The biggest problem is that it would guarantee only one more year of service from Suh. At $26.8 million for 2015, the only way to keep Suh off the market in 2016 would be to pay him 20 percent more than $26.8 million. That’s $32.16 million."
With the First Pick
Jed Collins, Denver’s Solution at FB?
Lucas Polglaze — Pro Football Spot
"One name I have yet to hear discussed is that of Jed Collins of the Detroit Lions, who could be a key addition. He is just 28 and coming off a campaign where he played 22.5% of the snaps for the offense. He played for the veteran minimum last year and doesn’t figure to find a payday this offseason."
Detroit Lions going to camp for fans
Bill Shea – Crain’s Detroit Business
"The Detroit Lions are taking fantasy football to the next level.But instead of fans drafting National Football League players for statistical games, the Lions are signing fans to compete on the field.The team is offering a three-day weekend in June that will replicate a minicamp and culminate in a two-hand touch football game at Ford Field. The price: $1,999. Anywhere from 50 to 70 participants are expected."
Regardess of Ndamukong Suh, Detroit Lions can move forward during NFL free agency
Pat Caputo – The Oakland Press
"Perception is free agency is window dressing, and the NFL Draft is all that really matters – which I’ve felt in the past.But it isn’t true. My view has changed because I have seen how free agency has transformed the Lions.They weren’t 11-5 last year because their draft was good. To say the Lions’ 2014 draft class had limited impact would be an understatement."
