Detroit Lions DT Ndamukong Suh has been given permission to explore free agency in order to gauge his market value. The Lions want Suh to make an informed decision and sign a deal he's happy with.

Suh despite all his on the field disciplinary issues has been one of the most disruptive defensive linemen in football since he was drafted back in 2010 and will likely become one of the highest paid defensive tackles in football if not the highest once he hits free agency.

Calvin Johnson is taking part in fewer reps in training camp this year than in years past and said he is trying to be smarter about his approach to practice with the goal of staying healthy the entire season.

Johnson played in just 14 games last season but that did not prevent him from wreaking havoc on opposing defenses to the tune of 1,492 yards and 12 touchdowns on 84 catches. As we saw in 2012 a fully healthy Johnson can be the BEST player in football when he neared the 2,000 yard single season receiving mark.

Lions claimed WR Quintin Payton off waivers from the Buccaneers.

The undrafted rookie, from North Carolina State, was trying to make the Buccaneers squad, but will get another chance to make it with a NFL team, this time with the Lions. He's nothing more than a practice player and shouldn't even be drafted in dynasty leagues.

The Lions have elected to put contract talks with Ndamukong Suh on hold until after the regular season ends.

It's a risky move as his franchise tag price will be through the roof ($26.7 million). He's one of the league's best players, and it would behoove the Lions to bag out a deal before he hits free agency.

Lions have released DE Kalonji Kashama.

Good luck saying this guy's name five times fast. Looks like the end of the road for this undrafted rookie.

Kyle Van Noy left practice Monday with a thumb injury. 

The extend of his injury has not been determined, but hopefully it is nothing serious. The Lions selected the BYU product with the 40th pick in this year's NFL draft and they expect Van Noy to be a benefactor at the start of the season.

Lions head coach Jim Caldwell said QB Matthew Stafford has displayed positive developments in his mechanics and can tell "he's worked at it even during the summer."

The key for Stafford this season is getting off to a better start in the first half. For the last two seasons, he has struggled mightily early in games and didn't post strong numbers until the Lions fell into catch-up mode in the second half. With better mechanics, hopefully he can prove more consistent throughout the game which will obviously make the Lions even more competitive all year.
