Off the news the NFL will not be reviewing the procedure for players reporting as eligible, after what happened to the Lions against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 17 last season, team president Rod Wood hit the ultimate right note.

It was not about issues with the procedure to report as eligible in that situation. It was about the mistake made by referee Brad Allen to declare Dan Skipper eligible and subsequently rule that Taylor Decker was not after he caught what should have been the game-winning two-point conversion.

Wood also told reporters, according to Jeremy Reisman of Pride of Detroit, that new uniforms for the Lions are coming before next month's draft, The draft will of course be in Detroit, so it's a unique and exploitable marketing and sales opportunity that should not be missed.

The question is what the new uniforms will look like.....

The Cameron Sutton situation has football implications for the Lions. But after the warrant for his arrest was issued on March 20, he has still not been found or turned himself in as of this writing. They took a closer look at the Sutton situation over at Pride of Detroit, on the latest Pride of Detroit PODcast.

During the aforementioned session with reporters down at the league meetings on Monday, Wood revealed the team was able to reach Sutton before the decision to release him.
