Jacksonville Jaguars: The club will likely keep S Donovin Darius after failing to trade him before or during the draft. "We're prepared to play with Donovin, and it looks like Donovin will be here [this season]," VP of personnel James Harris told the Florida Times-Union. "We've had [long-range contract] talks that haven't worked out, but it's just a professional disagreement. It's not like we don't like Donovin." The Jaguars did receive several calls about Darius on Saturday and Sunday but Harris said the offers left a lot to be desired.
Detroit Lions: Déjà vu isn't always a good thing, but fans in Detroit are hopeful that their latest brush with the phenomenon leaves a smile on their faces. The Lions drafted Oklahoma LB Teddy Lehman in the second round, and after being introduced to the hometown fans he informed team officials he wanted to don former LB Chris Spielman's No. 54. Spielman was one of the Lions most beloved players, and like Lehamn won the Butkus Award as the nation's top linebacker. "He's always been my favorite player," Lehman told the Detroit News. "I hope I'm not digging myself a hole by taking that number. We'll see what happens."
