Detroit Lions cornerback Darius Slay called Marvin Jones a "brother" and a "true role model." He's honoring Jones' family Sunday at the Pro Bowl with cleats that feature an image of both families, paying tribute to Jones' infant son Marlo who passed away in December. "I support him and I'm here for him," Slay said.

Lions DE Romeo Okwara is the Lions' nominee for the NFL's (and Microsoft's) "Anything But Ordinary" Player of the Year Award to be given out at NFL Honors. He was chosen because of his passion for photography, which included an exhibit showing in New York City this fall on the firefighters of Rescue 2 in Brooklyn.

The Lions promoted Hank Fraley to offensive line coach and Billy Yates to assistant offensive line coach. Fraley had worked under Jeff Davidson last year and has been the offensive line coach at UCLA and San Jose State. So there will be some continuity as Fraley is a disciple of Jeff Davidson, who stepped away from the Lions last week.

When Matt Patricia was hired, he told me he learned this from other coaches he spoke with about what they learned. It seems important now: "You instantly don't have the best staff, you instantly don't have the perfect staff. It's like developing a team. It's like, 'Hey, three years down the road, here's where we hope to be.' We hope to have all these pieces a bit older, these spots improved. It's going to be the same thing with a staff."
