NFL Notes: Chiefs, Lions, Titans


Chiefs DT Tamba Hali expressed some frustration on his Twitter account Saturday about playing just seven snaps against the Steelers in the Divisional round of the 2017 playoffs.

Hali added he is not done playing and adamantly wrote: “7 plays won’t cut it.


Lions president Rod Wood confirmed that he had a conversation with retired WR Calvin Johnson about returning to the team and is hopeful he comes back.

As I said on WJR, we had a very nice, cordial exchange,” Wood said, via Carlos Monarrez of the Detroit Free Press. “I’m hoping he comes. I’m not going to say any more beyond that. I do have confidence it’ll work out ultimately.”

  • Tim Twentyman of the Lions’ official site takes a look at the Lions’ safety position mentions Alex Carter, Charles Washington, and Rolan Milligan as three safeties who figure to be on the roster bubble this summer.


  • Jim Wyatt of the Titans’ official site could see the team being cautious with QB Marcus Mariota (fibula) during the preseason, but his level of activity will ultimately be determined by how he looks during practice.
  • Though the team upgraded their receiving corps from last season by adding Eric Decker and first-round Corey Davis, Wyatt still expects a “big year” from WR Rishard Matthews.
  • Decker told Wyatt that “roughly” five or six teams were interested in him.
  • Wyatt writes that the offensive line competition will be “fierce” during training camp, while third-year OL Josue Matias will have to prove to the team that he is capable of sticking around.
