Notes: Former Lions CB told Nate Burleson that Detroit is where ‘careers come to die’

When Nate Burleson first arrived in Detroit, he was given a rude awakening by a teammate.

  • Former Detroit Lions wide receiver Nate Burleson told an interesting story on the NFL Network show “Good Morning Football” this week. According to Burleson, when he signed with the Lions in 2010, a starting cornerback told him Detroit is where players’ careers “come to die.”

“Locked on Lions” podcast host Matt Dery did a little digging and hypothesizes that the player Burleson is talking about (he refused to say his name) is Chris Houston, who was traded to the Lions that same offseason. For what it’s worth Phillip Buchanon and Will Peterson were the Lions’ starting cornerbacks the year before Burleson arrived.

UPDATE: Apparently it’s not Houston:

  • Golden Tate’s career has anything but died in Detroit. In fact, he’s been one of the best receivers in the league since joining the Lions, and the team has benefitted from a huge bargain:

  • MLive’s Nate Atkins has a nice NFL Draft profile on one of the most popular picks for Detroit, edge rusher Harold Landry.

  • RIP to the Lions’ 2014 draft class:

  • The Lions’ search for draft talent continued on Tuesday. First, the Lions were represented at Merrimack’s Pro Day, likely to scout this tight end:

  • Additionally, the Lions had a private workout for Wisconsin safety Natrell Jamerson, a late-round prospect.

  • Does Eric Ebron’s release simply mean that the Lions aren’t intending on using the tight end position as much in the passing game? ESPN’s Michael Rothstein answers that and much more in his weekly mailbag.

  • Happy birthday to the Lions’ all-pro returner, Jamal Agnew:
