Detroit Lions DE Andre Fluellen is playing his third stint with the Lions, at age 29, but he finally feels at home on the field after spending his football life at defensive tackle. The 6-foot-2, 280-pounder was undersized at defensive tackle but isn't a prototypical end, either. Known for his non-stop motor, playing the covered end keeps him only one gap away from the football, Fluellen said. DE Jason Jones is expected to start at the position, but Fluellen has a four more weeks to win a roster spot as he battles DL Darryl Tapp and Devin Taylor.
"I've never played any position but D-tackle and offensive guard but it's just good that, like I said, the coaches see enough faith in me and kind of see something in me," Fluellen said. "I wasn't ready for it at first. I'll always do anything they ask me to, but I didn't know myself how I would do as a consistent end. But now, shoot, I kind of like it. This is all right kind of being out here at defensive end."

Detroit Lions DT Andre Fluellen said DT Ndamukong Suh was a fine teammate this season and was not late for any meetings. "He was like he always is," Fluellen said. "He's there, he's a good teammate and he's just pretty much like everybody else. We kind of keep ourselves on a standard in the defensive line room and he held the standard along with everybody else." FOX Sports analyst Heath Evans said Suh was uncontrollable in the locker room during the season and was late to several meetings.
