Detroit Lions LB Darryl Tapp got praise from head coach Jim Caldwell for his enthusiasm and professionalism. "I think Darryl was a great addition for us because not only does he bring some enthusiasm and love the game, but he's a professional and a consummate professional," head coach Jim Caldwell said.
"I mean, he does everything right. He listens, he reinforces what he's being taught, he knows and understands. He's been with Jim (Washburn) before, so he knows him and knows the scheme. He has a real good feel for things."

Detroit Lions head coach Jim Caldwell opened the season with three quarterbacks just four times in his 10 years with the Indianapolis Colts. In his two seasons with the Baltimore Ravens, the team kept just two QBs.
Fantasy Tip: Caldwell has hinted that he could be leaning towards keeping three QBs this year, but history suggests he could opt for just two. If he ends up keeping just two QBs, third-stringer Kellen Moore could be the odd man out.

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick had a strong offseason and caught the eye of new head coach Jim Caldwell and his staff, leading to speculation he could have a larger role in the offense.
Fantasy Tip: While Riddick is still behind Reggie Bush on the depth chart, keep in mind only a few people in Detroit knew who Joique Bell was because he played at hometown Wayne State University. People know who Bell is now, so if Riddick gets a chance to shine he could succeed. This is worth monitoring for handcuff purposes.

Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions teammates and coaches were not surprised that DT Ndamukong Suh was not taking part in voluntary workouts. "It certainly didn't blindside me," head coach Jim Caldwell said. "We certainly knew. He and I have probably had more discussions than any player that we've had on the team. He's been in-and-out. I think he was here on a couple days when I came on a visit, so we kind of knew exactly what was going on.

Detroit Lions general manager Martin Mayhew said he still sees "a place for the wide nine in our system," and new Lions coach Jim Caldwell said it's "necessary" to use the defensive alignment, which requires defensive ends to set up outside the tight end in order to get better angles in the pass rush. "If you've taken a look at us, when we were in Indy, did you see (Dwight) Freeney and (Robert) Mathis?" said Caldwell, the Indianapolis Colts' head coach in 2009-11. "What'd they line up in? There we go."
