That’s exactly what took place when former Lions wide out Calvin Johnson made some comments about the team he played for, stating […] The post Lions Coach Jim Caldwell Says Organization Concerned About Comments From WR Calvin Johnson appeared first on Lions Gab.

NFL Top 100 players for 2017: Matthew Stafford makes the top 50

Matthew Stafford will be ranked higher than the likes of Andrew Luck and Jameis Winston. On Monday, NFL Network released players 60 through 51 on their highly-publicized “Top 100 Players of 2017” list. The list is the top 100 players currently in the league as voted by a select group of NFL players. The bottom 50 of this year’s list has been revealed and there have not been any Detroit Lions announced. Some believed Lions like Darius Slay or Golden Tate could make the list this year, but considering players like Josh Norman, Janoris Jenkins, Amari Cooper and Dez Bryant have already...

Tuesday open thread: What player are you most eager to follow during Lions OTAs?

Tuesday open thread: What player are you most eager to follow during Lions OTAs?

The Lions begin OTAs on Tuesday. Who will you be watching? The Detroit Lions begin their first organized team activity on Tuesday. Over the next three weeks, the team will have 10 OTA sessions in the leadup to mandatory minicamp and eventually training camp in late July. While there is rarely any true information fans can pull from these sessions, they remain a highly anticipated portion of the offseason. This will be the first time the team practices together in real football drills. Though the Lions won’t don pads until July, this is still an essential part of preparation for the 2017...

New custom Detroit Lions jerseys now available for purchase

Finally, the Detroit Lions are offering customized jerseys for their new designs. Though the Detroit Lions rolled out highly popular new uniforms back in April, they haven’t exactly been thorough in their release of available jerseys to purchase in the new design. For over a month, fans could only select from a limited amount of players; if you wanted a different player’s jersey or your own name on the back, your only choice was to buy a jersey with the team’s old designs. But that finally changed this week when the Lions released the customizable jerseys on their official team...

Report: Former Lions DE Devin Taylor to meet with Giants

Report: Former Lions DE Devin Taylor to meet with Giants

The former Lions defensive end is visiting with the Giants this week. After a subpar season for the Detroit Lions defensive line, general manager Bob Quinn shook things up this offseason. The Lions let two of their biggest contributors at defensive tackle—Tyrunn Walker and Stefan Charles—hit free agency and land with the Rams and Jaguars respectively. But perhaps their biggest change was at left defensive end. No Lions defensive lineman had more snaps in 2016 than Devin Taylor. Detroit chose to let Taylor hit the market in March while signing Cornelius Washington on the very first day...

Lions notes: How accurate of a deep ball passer is Matthew Stafford?

Lions notes: How accurate of a deep ball passer is Matthew Stafford?

He’s got a big arm, but how accurate is it? It’s common knowledge that Matthew Stafford has one of the strongest arms in the league, but is it accurate? Jonathan Kinsley of Brick Wall Blitz did a very intensive study of NFL quarterbacks and their deep ball accuracy. He found that Matthew Stafford, based on charting every 2016 pass, was one of the least accurate passers for passes over 16 yards—28th of the qualifying 31 quarterbacks. However, he jumps to 14th in passes over 20 yards. You can see where he lines up with the rest of the quarterbacks in the charts below (click to...

Peter King: Theo Riddick should get the bulk of carries for Lions in 2017

Peter King: Theo Riddick should get the bulk of carries for Lions in 2017

Monday Morning Quarterback’s Peter King is off the mark when it comes to his assessment of Detroit’s backfield. More offseason power rankings in the middle of May because why not? Peter King of Monday Morning Quarterback released the first half of his two-part power rankings on Monday morning, placing Detroit at No. 17 amongst the rest of the NFL. King hits on the most important beats of the Lions offseason thus far: Swapping out Larry Warford and Riley Reiff for Rick Wagner and T.J. Lang, adding a rookie in Jarrad Davis who should play from the jump and having a general skepticism...

Monday open thread: What are realistic expectations for Lions running game in 2017?

Monday open thread: What are realistic expectations for Lions running game in 2017?

The Lions need improvement running the ball in 2017, but how much improvement can we expect? The Detroit Lions had one of the worst running games in the NFL in 2016. They had the third-fewest rushing yards per game (81.9) while managing just 3.7 yards per carry, good for 27th in the league. Even with one of the most dynamic passing games, the Lions rushing attack could never seem to get itself off the ground. But at this point in the offseason, hope springs eternal. Many are expecting a big turnaround in the Lions running game. The health of Ameer Abdullah, who played in just six quarter...

NFL Draft Picks 2017: Lions bolster defense with linebacker Jarrad Davis

NFL Draft Picks 2017: Lions bolster defense with linebacker Jarrad Davis

An NFC North rival of the Packers’ landed an agile, fast linebacker who can play all three downs. The Detroit Lions had an interesting decision at pick number 21. Do they build up on their defense or draft another weapon for Matthew Stafford? There was a lot of defensive talent on the board at pick 21 and the Lions went with athletic Florida linebacker Jarrad Davis. Davis will step in immediately and be a big time player on the weak side of the Lions defense. He is very athletic and can fly from sideline to sideline to make tackles, and he is fast enough to cover running backs and tight...
