  Lions | Detroit GM quiet about Adrian Peterson    Mon Mar 27, 08:40 PM

Detroit Lions general manager Bob Quinn would not say if the team is pursuing free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Vikings) but does believe Peterson can still play.

Footballguys view: Peterson isn't going to get the $8 million price tag he reportedly wanted earlier in free agency. The market is cool for his services, but a lower expected price tag could heat things up. The Lions have change-of-pace backs in Theo Riddick and Ameer Abdullah, and they could use a between-the-tackles banger like Peterson.

  Lions | Detroit not interested in Colin Kaepernick    Mon Mar 27, 08:28 PM

Free-agent QB Colin Kaepernick (49ers) is not an option for the Detroit Lions because he does not if the team's offensive scheme, according to general manager Bob Quinn.

Footballguys view: Kaepernick wouldn't fit with the Lions. There are plenty of other teams where he'd fit as a backup, but Detroit is not one of them.

  Lions | No talks with Ziggy Ansah yet     Mon Mar 27, 03:36 PM

Detroit Lions DE Ziggy Ansah has not been in contact with the Lions yet regarding a contract extension.

Footballguys view: Ansah is entering the final year of his rookie contract and could receive the franchise tag next offseason if both sides do not agree to a new deal in time. He's got a $12.7 million cap hit in 2017 and Ansah is set to be a free agent in 2018.

  Lions | Detroit checks out Tim White    Sun Mar 26, 10:48 PM

Arizona State WR Tim White worked out for Detroit Lions head coach Jim Caldwell and general manager Bob Quinn over the weekend.

Footballguys view: White is a late-round prospect who should be a decent slot receiver at the pro level. The fact he can contribute as a return man also helps his draft stock.

  Lions | Theo Riddick had double wrist surgery    Sun Mar 26, 03:03 PM

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (wrist) underwent surgery on both of his wrists after the season, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Riddick is expected to be a full participant in organized team activities later this spring. The Lions should select a RB at some point in the 2017 NFL draft, and that player should be more of a full-time player. Riddick should continue as a fine receiving threat and change-of-pace back for the Lions.

  Lions | De'Veon Smith to work out for Detroit    Sun Mar 19, 08:29 PM

Michigan RB De'Veon Smith will work out for the Detroit Lions next month when the Lions host local prospects.

Footballguys view: Smith is a big back (223 pounds) but he runs small. His best assets shine when he's catching passes out of the backfield. The Lions need a real feature back, not a receiving threat.

  Lions | Anquan Boldin return possible but unlikely    Sat Mar 18, 06:18 PM

Free-agent WR Anquan Boldin (Lions) could return to the Detroit Lions for a second season according to ESPN's Michael Rothstein, but likely only if T.J. Jones and Jace Billingsley do not step up to assume the No. 3 receiving job. Rothstein also believes Boldin is unlikely to sign with any team until just before training camp.

Free-agent OG T.J. Lang (Packers) agreed to a three-year deal with the Detroit Lions on Sunday, March 12. The financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: The Lions have upgraded the interior of their offensive line with Lang. They already added a great young right tackle by adding Ricky Wagner early in the free agency process. The Lions need to run the ball better, and these two pieces should help them do that.

  Lions | Power back could help Detroit offense    Fri Mar 10, 12:12 AM

Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah's (foot) foot injury was frustrating to deal with last season, according to general manager Bob Quinn, and beat writer Bob Wojnowski believes Detroit needs to add a power back to stabilize a running game that has produced one 1,000-yard rusher in the last 14 seasons.

Footballguys view: Abdullah is not a full-time back, but he can make plays in space as a part-time player. Look for the Lions to select a power back in the 2017 NFL draft.

The Detroit Lions may consider asking LB DeAndre Levy to restructure his contract which would pay him the same amount of money that he would make under his current deal if he remains healthy.

Footballguys view: Limited to six games over the last two seasons, Levy may never be the player he was before 2015. It makes sense the Lions would want to restructure his deal based on his recent injury history.
