  3. Lions promote Darius Slay amid changes

    Kevin Seifert

    It has always seemed a matter of time before the Detroit Lions elevated rookie cornerback Darius Slay to first-team status, and it appears that time has come. Slay spent the weekend in that role, having hurdled veteran Ron Bartell to work opposite...

    Kevin Seifert

    We're Black and Blue All Over: Reading Chris Houston's assessment of the 2012 Detroit Lions prompted me to re-publish it as a public service message for the 2013 Chicago Bears. Last year's Lions group had a high number of veterans in contract y...

  5. 'Kickalicious' keeps it interesting for Lions

    Kevin Seifert

    So, Kickalicious made a 58-yard field goal Monday at the Detroit Lions' training camp. Veteran David Akers' longest conversion came from 40 yards, according to local reports. So is there anything to get excited about yet? I don't think so. At leas...

  7. Health status check as vets report to camp

    Kevin Seifert

    NFL players are never healthier than on the first day of training camp, or so goes conventional wisdom. As the first NFC North veterans report to training camp Wednesday -- Chicago Bears players are headed to Bourbonnais, Ill., as we speak -- it's wo...

  9. The health of Louis Delmas and Chris Hope

    Kevin Seifert

    The Detroit Lions' recent history includes scattered dives into free agency for veteran defensive backs to provide insurance against a projected starter's demise. Most recently, safeties Tyrell Johnson and Erik Coleman found their way onto the Lions'...

  10. Two veteran O-linemen for Lions

    Kevin Seifert

    Over the past couple of days, the Detroit Lions have added two free agent offensive linemen who have started a combined 170 games in their careers. On paper, at least, the arrival of guard Jake Scott and guard/center Leroy Harris has made for a crowd...

  11. Programming note: Minicamp coverage!

    Kevin Seifert

    Only one thing separates NFL veteran minicamps from organized team activities (OTAs). Minicamps are mandatory, meaning players under contract can be fined for missing them. OTAs are voluntary, which means players are subject only to public criticism ...

  12. Veteran free agents: Collusion or value?

    Kevin Seifert

    Dwight Freeney's claim that NFL owners colluded during free agency, made during an interview with CBSSports.com, brings to mind last month's post about the tough market for some high-profile and veteran NFL players. As you might recall: Defensive...

  13. BBAO: Bears interested in TE Zach Ertz

    Kevin Seifert

    We're Black and Blue All Over: Would the Chicago Bears draft a tight end in the first round even after signing veteran Martellus Bennett to a four-year, $20 million free agent contract? ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay thinks so, and has continu...

    Kevin Seifert

    We're Black and Blue All Over: Last month, Minnesota Vikings general manager Rick Spielman was asked if veteran punter Chris Kluwe would be with the team in 2013. Spielman wouldn't answer. Kluwe has the highest gross average (44.4 yards) in team h...

  15. David Akers: In decline or on rebound?

    Kevin Seifert

    The Detroit Lions signed veteran place-kicker David Akers on Friday night, and to me it's fair to ask if the Lions will hand him the 2013 job outright or pit him in a competition before deciding who will replace the retired Jason Hanson. Akers is ...

  16. BBAO: What Chris Canty's visit means

    Kevin Seifert

    We're Black and Blue All Over: The Green Bay Packers' limited use of free agency over the years means we should pay attention to every scheduled visit by a veteran to Lambeau Field. At the moment, at least, former New York Giants defensive lineman...
