According to the Detroit Free Press, the Lions have spoken to the Chargers about a potential trade for cornerback Antonio Cromartie.
Cromartie had 10 interceptions in 2007, but has had only five interceptions over the past two seasons. He has fallen out of favor because of a lack of physical play and off-the-field issues.

According to the Detroit News the Saints could ask Reggie Bush to restructure his contract or be released if he refuses.
There are a number of teams that could be interested in Bush.
The Seahawks need a running back and who knows Bush better than his former college coach, Pete Carroll, who was hired last month from Southern California.
Bush could provide the Lions with a home-run threat.
It is believed that the 49ers would be interested in Bush as a steady backup to Frank Gore.

The Detroit Lions could host the Green Bay Packers on Thanksgiving day without the services of starting QB Matthew Stafford or wide receiver Calvin Johnson .
Stafford suffered a sprained AC joint in his non-throwing shoulder last week, and while he told the Detroit News that the injury still hurts, he added "the soreness is less than when it happened, for sure."
Johnson injured his knee in the same game, and Lions coach Jim Schwartz said the injury is still a concern. Schwartz added that a final decision on Stafford and Johnson will probably not be made until Thursday.
