Calvin Johnson isn’t happy with how his relationship with the Detroit Lions ended.
The Detroit Lions unveiled a set of new uniforms tonight, with a thirteen-minute livestream that reached more than 40,000 viewers. Here is a helpful comparative chart from the official website of the new design, the aptly-named DetroitLionsUniforms.com:
Former Lions wide receiver Titus Young has been sentenced to four years in California state prison after pleading no contest to battery in connection with an assault early last year, according to court documents.
Former Lions cornerback Stanley Wilson was arrested yesterday in Oregon for trying to break into someone’s house and then removing all of his clothes when police arrived. It is the third time in the past year that he has been arrested while naked.
The Pontiac Silverdome used to be the home of the Bad Boys, Barry Sanders, and Wrestlemania. Now it hosts ruin and some illegal Volkswagens. Here’s a video of some people who went there to hit golf balls, because reality television.
In an instance of football violence likely to result in positive results for neither party, Dallas punter Chris Jones annihilated Lions returner Andre Roberts late in the teams’ Monday Night Football matchup. Sure, it worked out well for the punter this time—but not always.

Matthew Stafford is in his eighth season in the NFL. He’s lost Calvin Johnson to retirement, and thanks to injuries he’s currently without his top three running backs and his top two tight ends.

Today’s Titans-Lions game was a sloppy showing between two teams that seemed to have no self-discipline on the field.
Preseason football can feel pointless; enough so that those watching are sometimes compelled to turn to more interesting pursuits. Such as having sex on the field, as these bats did in Saturday night’s Lions-Ravens game, captured by Baltimore Sun photographer Karl Ferron:
This afternoon, the Detroit Lions signed tight end Andrew Quarless. Quarless, who played for the Packers for five seasons, will be suspended for the first two games of the 2016 NFL season from a July 2015 altercation where he shot his gun during an altercation outside of a Miami nightclub.
Former Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson, who abruptly retired after the 2015-16 NFL season, opened up in an interview with ESPN’s Michael Smith about the physical toll that football had on his body.
