Notes: Jace Billingsley signing to New England Patriots’ practice squad While no Detroit Lions players that were waived or cut this weekend have found their way onto a 53-man roster as of Monday afternoon , a handful of players have jumped to other teams’ practice squads.The latest is former Lions receiver Jace Billingsley, who has reportedly signed with the New England Patriots.For the past two years, Billingsley has spent most of his time on the Lions’ practice squad after failing to make the team in back-to-back years. He was waived again this offseason, but there was no indication if the Lions wanted him back this time. ESPN’s Mike Reese seems to suggest Detroit tried to get him back, noting that Billingsley “could have returned” but saw New England “as better opportunity.”Considering the Lions kept six wide receivers on the roster this year, including undrafted rookie Brandon Powell, it certainly makes sense on Billingsley’s end. In New England, he has a shot to be promoted to their regular roster at any time. With Julian Edelman serving a four-game suspension to start the year and New England dealing with a couple of injuries, Billingsley could be a good fit there. However, the Patriots were also awarded two receivers off waivers this weekend—Chad Hansen and Amara Darboh—who will offer some serious competition to Billingsley. It had been the least-kept secret, but the Detroit Lions will officially be facing off against Jets rookie quarterback Sam Darnold: The Athletic has a great piece on new Lions linebacker Marquis Flowers and how Matt Patricia used him during the 2017 AFC divisional playoff game against the Titans. In case you were wondering if the Lions made waiver claims on guys like Mario Edwards or Carl Davis... they did not: Jeff Risdon of Lions Wire has a nice , short profile on the newest Lions cornerback Dee Virgin. This has to be a good sign for the upcoming season, right? Bleacher Report’s Maurice Moton thinks the Detroit Lions are one the biggest sleeper teams this year and believes they deserve more respect. The Lions are a distant fourth in the division according to a variety of post-draft power rankings."After the 2019 NFL Draft saw mixed reviews for the Detroit Lions, it should be no surprise that national expectations remain relatively low for the team. Finishing last season 6-10 will do that to any team, especially one with such a poor, long-standing reputation. So with the new flood of post-draft power rankings comes a wave of analysts expecting another rough season for the Lions. Here’s a look around at the most recent power rankings out there.NFL.com (Elliot Harrison)Lions: 20thHarrison dropped the Lions one spot after the draft, admitting that the Lions got a bonafide starter in T.J. Hockenson, whom he called “the premier tight end in the great college football marketplace.”However, he didn’t seem all that impressed with the rest of the class, giving Jahlani Tavai a big fat “meh.”Harrison’s rankings have Detroit as the worst NFC North team by far. The Bears (seventh), Vikings (12th) and Packers (16th) all rank in the top half.Bleacher Report (Entire staff)Lions: 23rd (High: 16, Low: 26)Bleacher Report’s team of three analysts put Detroit firmly in the bottom half of the league , with only one of the writers placing them in the top half... and just barely. Interestingly, they write off the Lions’ offseason moves, saying “little has happened this offseason to indicate the team’s going to be substantially better in 2019.” Though they backtrack and mention the addition of Trey Flowers, Bleacher Report apparently doesn’t think too highly of the additions of Jesse James, Justin Coleman, and C.J. Anderson, among others. They, too, have the Lions last in the division, and mention it’s “by a sizable margin.” USA TODAY (Nate Davis)Lions: 28thWe’ve saved the best (worst) for last. Davis has the Lions as a bottom-five team, above only the Cardinals , Giants, Bengals and Dolphins. Again, the talking point here has to do with their placing in the division.“DE Trey Flowers, TE T.J. Hockenson are quality pickups. But Detroit looks outclassed in NFC North, and QB Matthew Stafford can’t catch a break,” Davis writes. For comparison’s sake, Davis actually has the Vikings first in the division (fifth overall), the Packers next (11th) and the Bears coming in at third (13th). The message throughout all three rankings is clear: the Lions are the worst in the division, and it’s not even close. Hopefully Matt Patricia and the Lions can prove them wrong.
