NFL Notes: Lions, Ravens, Seahawks, & Vikings


Lions GM Bob Quinn mentioned that  Isaiah Johnson, Tavon Wilson, Rafael Bush, and Miles Killebrew are competing for the starting safety role opposite of Glover Quin.

At the safety position, we obviously have Glover Quin and he’s going to be a starter on side, and I think the battle to play next to Glover is a really intriguing one,” Quinn said, via Justin Rogers. “Each one of a few guys really stepped up during the course of OTAs and minicamp. Isaiah Johnson, Tavon Wilson, Rafael Bush, Miles Killebrew, that’s four guys right there that have taken reps with the ones over the past couple weeks of OTAs and minicamp. That’s kind of an under-the-radar battle that myself and the coaching staff are really looking to see how that unfolds.”


Clifton Brown of CSN Mid-Atlantic names five returning players on the Ravens that are on the roster bubble, including:


  • Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said that second-year WR Tyler Lockett is a “starting wide receiver for us.” (Liz Mathews)


Vikings RB Adrian Peterson said he will determine the length of his NFL career on his mental ability to continue playing.

That’s it,” Peterson said, via Ben Goessling of ESPN. “Training camp, going through the grind, OTAs and all that — that will definitely be the deciding factor. Physically, body-wise, I’ll be good. It’s just mentally — like with OTAs, I’m out there practicing, I’m going, I’m putting in work. But it’s so repetitive that it’s more suited toward the young guys and getting them into the system. It gets kind of boring.”

Peterson went on to say that spending time with his family would also factor into any potential retirement decision for him.

All that could be a deciding factor for me, too,” Peterson said. “The kids and all that, that plays a role, because I love spending time with my kids, and they’re getting older now. We’ll see how things play out. I think you just have to wait for that time to come, and it will feel right or it will feel wrong. Right now, it feels good. It feels right [to be playing].”
