Philadelphia-eagles

Here's all the latest news from around the internet regarding the Detroit Lions for Thursday, July 5.

Lions' linebacker Justin Durant participated in a chat at Freep.com and admitted his teammates have been "terrible at decision making" during the offseason. There's an understatement. —Pro Football Talk
  • Speaking of the terrible offseason, in case you missed it, former Lions' cornerback Eric Wright was arrested under suspicion of a DUI.
