Most of the main decision-makers in the NFL are either headed to or are already in Arizona for the league's owners meetings.
This means that it'll probably be slow until later in the week when it comes to pre-draft visits and maybe even private workouts, depending on the franchise. While the Detroit Lions still have a little bit of potential free agent work to do, particularly on the offensive line, here's a chance to re-set the roster heading into the week. There are 65 players on the roster right now (64 according to the NFLPA database, but Rashean Mathis' contract isn't in the system yet).
And now, a look around the Interwebs in search of Lions and other news:
