Links: Darius Slay turning heads in Detroit

Chicago Bears

Tight end Martellus Bennett is working to be considered one of the best tight ends in the game.

Michael C. Wright of ESPNChicago.com: "Jay Cutler's right. 'It's hard to go out there Year 1 and blow the doors off,' offensively. So asking him and the Bears to do that in 2013 simply isn't fair; especially considering Cutler is learning his fourth offense in five years. What's fair however, are expectations for a markedly better campaign this season than any other Cutler has been a part of as a Chicago Bear."

Detroit Lions

Rookie cornerback Darius Slay is making coaches take notice. "I don't know if he knows he's in the NFL or not," Lions defensive coordinator Gunther Cunningham said. "That is a good thing, trust me. Somebody asked me about him. I said, 'He has no conscience.' That may be the number one criteria for any corner you want on your team. He doesn't let things bother him."

Wide receiver Calvin Johnson says confidence is on the rise in Detroit.

Everson Griffen says he has no plans to alter his playing style after drawing two fines last season. "You just go out there and play ball," Griffen said. "When the QB's staring you down, you go get him. There's no trying to aim and hit his head. I'm out there playing football the best I can for my family."
