Detroit took several steps to improving its football team this offseason both through additions on the field and on the sideline. The Lions traded for Golden Tate and drafted tight end Eric Ebron out of North Carolina with the 10th overall pick. Jim Caldwell was hired as head coach after being Peyton Manning’s quarterback coach during Indy’s championship season in 2006 and Baltimore’s offensive coordinator in its title-winning season. Joining Caldwell is new offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi, formerly of New Orleans where he spent seven years as an offensive assistant and quarterbacks coach. Detroit’s offseason moves should improve most if not all production on the field this season.
