Slay was humble and smart enough to go out and seek advice from an experieced CB who could help him in the off season rather than sitting around as a coach potato waiting for it to all come to him.
I have to give him a lot of credit. His game improved last year and the hard work showed.

Will Eric Ebron make the second-year leap for the Detroit Lions?

https://www.numberfire.com/nfl/news/5302/will-eric-ebron-make-the-second-year-leap-for-detroit
After a disappointing rookie season, can Eric Ebron bounce back this year and show everyone why the Detroit Lions selected him with the 10th overall pick in 2014?

3rd from last in available cap space.....
I will be glad when all of that dead money comes off the books next year.
Where do the Detroit Lions stack up in terms of how much cap space they have? Let's take a look at a league-wide ranking.

It's a good thing we settled the kicker situation before the rule change.
Otherwise Henery in there, we would have to go for 2 all the time.
But now with the new rule, the strategy changes.
Each team has to decide 1st what they are going to do. No trickery of creating matchups and faking.
Extra-point kicks will now be snapped from the 15-yard line, back 13 yards from previous years, and defenses can now score on failed attempts.

Exactly, if ask me the perfect setup would've been to place it at the 10 and let them either kick or go for two. Defense should get 7 as they would any other time, don't fumble. Simple

I see most getting a good look; however I think Lance Moore will provide the least.
The rest will get a good look for regular time.

I would move Luck up and Romo back but not bad really. Not sure about Smith at 10 either.

Welcome aboard Corey

Corey Wootton (DL63)

HT: 6'6" WT: 270LBS.

POSITION: DE

SCHOOL: Northwestern

ARM LENGTH: 34 3/4"

HANDS: 10 1/4"

OVERVIEW

Corey is an outstanding combination of size and strength for the position. His production is down from previous seasons and much of that can be attributed to a knee injury sustained in the Alamo Bowl at the end of last season. He is a decent athlete but not an explosive player off the edge. His lateral agility and change of direction hinders his playmaking ability in space. Corey does defend the run well and can anchor effectively to hold the point. He utilizes quick hands and long arms to control blockers but needs to expand his pass rush package to be effective at the next level. Wootton's measurables, instincts and toughness makes him an interesting prospect for most defensive fronts. He wasn't nearly as effective as previous seasons and knee concerns will be closely scrutinized going into the 2010 Draft.

COMBINE RESULTS

ANALYSIS

STRENGTHS

Wootton is big and has a great amount of power for the defensive end spot. He excels in run defense using his long arms and toughness to disengage from blockers and make plays. Shows good instincts and intelligence when diagnosing at the line of scrimmage. Had some impressive previous production earlier in career.

WEAKNESSES

Wootton only possesses average athleticism and isn't comfortable playing in space. Doesn't show the range to make plays away from him in the running game or the edge quickness to consistently get to the quarterback. Has some durability concerns (previous season ending neck injury, major knee injury).

I still don't buy it. Miami tampered with Suh, no doubt in my mind at all. What does the Community say ?

And that's because of Suh. I have no idea if they did anything wrong.

OTA's up and coming.
CB, RB, WR's are the big watch.
After a long holiday weekend, the Detroit Lions will return to the field for the start of organized team activities next week.

Looking forward to him challenging for the slot.
Between Bentley or Lawson, one of those guys most likely falls down the depth chart. The new kid on the block is here.
The fiercely competitive Diggs has big shoes to fill, but he embraces the challenge of living up to the standards set by his brother, a former first-round draft pick and 12-year NFL veteran.

Hoping he makes it, along with Lawson.

I am happy with how they have tried to address the CB outside and also in the slot.
It will be interesting.

She knows who she is, 😂 Do you like more meat on your woman, you want some handle bars to hold on to as you tame that wild beast of a woman ? Look no further, get yourself a Steelers fan girl. What they lack in brain function they makeup in sexiness. Don't believe me, check out the photo below.

While in somewhat of a dead time, was trying to think of what I would like the Lions to have done if had 1 more spot left. Was there anyone better than Wooten out there? Like to hear anyone's feedback.

Sorry John, been on a business trip.
For me, I think the roster has filled out nicely.
Some things come down to money and value and you can't get all of the guys available who might have been free agents or whatever.
I feel might better about or CB position though than I did prior to any moves.
That might balance any perceived loss on the Dline penetration.
