Lions | Top draft picks to be on the field quickly

Wed, 01 May 2013 13:01:55 -0700

Detroit Lions general manager Martin Mayhew said he expects the teams high draft picks to be on the field quickly because of the needs of the team. "That's a fair statement, but it's also fair to say we had more holes coming into it, or more holes that we knew about, coming into this draft than we did last year," Mayhew said. "We do expect a lot of those guys, especially guys that we took early, to be on the field pretty quickly." First-round pick DE Ezekiel Ansah was drafted to replace DE Kyle Vanden Bosch. Second round pick CB Darius Slay will compete with CB Bill Bentley. Third round pick OG Larry Warford will likely replace OG Stephen Peterman.

Lions | Kyle Vanden Bosch likely to be cap casualty

Mon, 04 Feb 2013 12:12:05 -0800

Detroit Lions DE Kyle Vanden Bosch is likely to be a salary cap casualty this offseason. OG Rob Sims is the only secure starter on the offensive line, and OT Gosder Cherilus will become a free agent. OT Jeff Backus has a year left on his contract, but the team isn't rushing to make a decision on him. OG Riley Reiff will start somewhere in 2013. OT Jason Fox, if he's re-signed, should see a good shot to play at tackle next season.

Lions | Could show interest in Jason Babin

Wed, 28 Nov 2012 08:03:23 -0800

The Detroit Lions could have some interest in free-agent DE Jason Babin (Eagles) but not through waivers. Any team that claims Babin will be responsible for the balance of his $5.575-million contract this year, about $1.8 million. The Lions don't have enough cap space to take on that deal without restructuring current contracts. However, DE Cliff Avril and DE Lawrence Jackson will be unrestricted free agents after the season, and DE Kyle Vanden Bosch just turned 34, so the Lions might be interested in Babin.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers said Detroit Lions DL Kyle Vanden Bosch has a knack for delivering late hits to opponents.

So no, he hit me in the chin," Rodgers said. "...He likes to lay on people. Like I said, if you have a camera on him the entire game, and we watch the film, he is late getting to a lot of plays, and he just lays on guys, and stays on there."
