The Patriots better be careful when the play the Lions this week.
Here is what SUH had to say about Tommy Uggs.
“I’ve been fortunate enough to come across his path many times on the field and off the field,” Suh said Sunday. “He’s a good dude. I like him.

Brandon Pettigrew has been one of the staples of the passing attack for the Detroit Lions since coming into the league in 2009. Having the prototypical body type of a wide receiver, it isn't a surprise that he can be very active in the offense.

The Detroit Lions lost one of their three starting linebackers in free agency. His likely replacement will be a familiar face.
Ashlee Palmer, who saw plenty of action on special teams last season, will join Stephen Tulloch and DeAndre Levy in the middle of the defense this season. He replaces starter Justin Durant, who's now battling for a job in Dallas.

For Detroit Lions rookie cornerback Darius Slay, this next one counts and matters.
It appears that Slay has a chance to lock down a starting job for the regular-season opener with a strong performance in Thursdays exhibition against New England at Ford Field.
Just a day after being released by the Lions, receiver Mike Thomas signed with the Cardinals on Tuesday, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com. Less than a year ago, the Lions acquired Thomas from the Jaguars in exchange for a 2014 fifth round pick.
