PFT Live: Lions talk with Dave Birkett, Jaguars talk with Mike Dempsey


Offseason programs are well underway around the league and we’ll check in with a couple of teams during Wednesday’s edition of PFT Live.

Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press will join Mike Florio for a look at where the Lions are right now. The team drafted defensive end Ziggy Ansah in the first round and added cornerback Darius Slay in the second round, although Slay will be sidelined for rookie minicamp after having surgery to deal with a torn meniscus. We’ll find out what the Lions have planned for those rookies and how much pressure there is on coach Jim Schwartz to produce a winner this season.

Mike Dempsey of 1010XL in Jacksonville will also drop by to talk about the Jaguars, whose General Manager Dave Caldwell recently made another statement of non-interest in quarterback Tim Tebow. Dempsey and Florio will talk about what the Jags will be doing at quarterback while touching on the other big developments in the first offseason with Caldwell and new coach Gus Bradley in place.

You can watch it all live at noon ET.

  1. Lions should be a much better team, they are getting younger bigger, and faster. They seem to be letting loose of the dead wood, and adding hungry talented, yet somewhat raw players to the roster. This team has a ton of talent so I think it comes down to coaching and health at this point. I see the Lions making a big jump this year and hope they don’t disappoint me yet again.

  2. Dempsey is on point about everything he said in Jacksonville. Props on the interview Mike, and us real Jags fans would definitely appreciate no more Tebow talk surrounding the Jags. I get it’s great for ratings, but man, enough is enough haha.
