Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.
Lions are looking to veteran free agents to help shore up their WR woes and have invited Stevie among others to workouts with them this week. I'm sure he could help them this year and it would be great to see him in action again.
I know guys like new wallpapers now and then, this one is pretty sweet. Plus it was tweeted out by Devin Gardner, not sure who created to give proper credit.
Aaron Schatz over at ESPN put together a top 25 list of potential breakout players for this next season (LINK, $). Here's what he had to say about Martin, who came in at #17:
Martin, a third-round pick in the 2012 draft, led all Titans defensive tackles last year with 8.5 hurries. That's surprising considering he's more of a classic nose tackle rather than a penetrating three-technique. Scouts considered Martin a blue-collar grinder whose best strength was his solid base. But in his first year in Tennessee, he was faster than advertised and showed a variety of pass-rush moves. Martin was considered a possible first-round pick until he really struggled during his senior year at Michigan. That was partly due to a scheme change, although oddly, the new scheme he struggled in was actually more similar to what he's playing now in Tennessee. He should be in line for a jump in playing time despite the signing of Sammie Lee Hill.
A couple other notable players are Ronnell Lewis of the Lions (#23), and Ryan Mallett (#8).
