One thing you can count on with the Detroit Lions is that they are never, ever boring. Follow the latest news including injuries, roster moves and more here daily from Oakland Press beat writer Paula Pasche. Plus you'll find regular commentary about the team.


Decisions to be made

One of the few positions that is not a huge concern is the Lions’ linebacking corps. However, there are questions. DeAndre Levy proved toward the end of the season he’s ready to take over the middle linebacker spot. Defensive coordinator Gunther Cunningham was high on the rookie from the start and Levy did nothing to prove him wrong. Veteran Larry Foote started the season in the middle and the Lions had no beef with him. In fact, he brought exactly what they needed to the equation — skill and leadership. Foote was only signed for a year. Do they re-sign him? Julian Peterson also played well, but he’s scheduled to make $7.5 million next season. The Lions must determine whether he’s worth it. They've also got Ernie Sims who is still under contract. We’ll know more in the next few weeks.
