Lions | LB Notes

Detroit Lions.com reports the team has upgraded their speed at linebacker this season. Chris Claiborne and Barrett Green are slated to start at middle and weakside linebacker, respectively. Both were starters last season, but Claiborne is entering his first full season as the middle linebacker and Green his first training camp as a starter. "Moving Chris inside fits him to his best position," defensive coordinator Kurt Schottenheimer said. Brian Williams, Jeff Gooch and Clint Kriewaldt are among a group expected to compete for the other starting linebacker job.
