Here's all the latest Detroit Lions notes from around the web for July 25.
- As we mentioned last week, it was very important for Riley Reiff to sign his contract and make it to camp on time. That happened, as Reiff agreed to his four year, $8 million dollar contract prior to Monday's deadline. The rookie will now be free to continue developing. –Detroit Free Press
- The offensive line has some additional depth from a familiar face. Johnny Culbreath, arrested in January for possession of marijuana, was released Tuesday. In his place, the Lions picked up Jonathan Scott, a former Pittsburgh Steeler who started his career in Detroit. Scott played with the Steelers in Super Bowl XLV and started five game for Pittsburgh last year. —Detroit Free Press
- Prior to training camp, there are a few injuries to speak of. Ronnell Lewis and Chris Greenwood will open camp on the PUP list. Greenwood is recovering from abdominal surgery, and his injury will make the Lions even thinner at the cornerback spot, especially in light of Aaron Berry's release. —Mlive
- Speaking of Berry, the former Lion says he's sorry for everything that happened and has entered the NFL's substance abuse program. Here's hoping he can turn his life around first and worry about football second. —Yahoo
- Apparently, it's time to start predicting the outcome of games already despite the fact that training camp and preseason have not even begun. Everyone's favorite columnist, CBS Sports's Pete Prisco, took the liberty of projecting every single NFL game. In case you were wondering, he's got the Lions going 9-7 and missing the playoffs. Go figure. —CBS Sports
- Looking around the NFC North, it's clear that the Chicago Bears are starting to feel some heat from the Lions. Rashawn Franklin of Chicagonow.com dedicated an entire article to how the Bears' focus in 2012 should be putting the Lions "back in their place" as the third best team in the division. –Chicago Bears Huddle, Chicagonow.com
- Finally, with training camp set to open Friday and the preseason schedule not far behind that, it's time to think ahead to the start of the season. In Detroit, that means getting ready for the 16th annual kickoff luncheon, which will be held at Ford Field August 29th. CBS Detroit has all the important information you need about the event so you can think ahead and not get left out. —CBS Detroit
