Around the NFC North: Lions OTAs, Titus Young, Matt Forte


The Lions dominate today’s trip around the NFC North…

Lions LB Stephen Tulloch has knee tendinitis and will miss 3-4 weeks. In better news, Jahvid Best reported for OTAs and was a full participant in the first day. There had been some doubt about Best’s football future after the running back missed the last ten games of the season with a concussion. Things are not so rosy for Titus Young who was excused from Monday’s OTAs after reportedly “sucker punching” Louis Delmas. Kids these days…

In Chicago…the Bears and Matt Forte are still at an impasse in contract negotiations. The Bears have a chance to seriously contend in 2012 and would do well to get Forte in the fold. Or they could get Chester Taylor on the horn. Or not..

Lombardi Ave. asks, are the Packers and Donald Driver working behind the scenes? Does Driver have time in between dance rehearsals and costume fittings?
