It doesn't appear the Detroit Lions are interested in safety John Lynch, who left the Denver Broncos earlier this week. The Lions have been among a handful of teams mentioned as a possible landing point for Lynch because of his close relationship with coach Rod Marinelli dating back to their years with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

"We're not looking right now," Marinelli told reporters Thursday at the Lions' training camp.

Four players are competing for playing time at safety, including: Dwight Smith, Gerald Alexander, Kalvin Pearson and Daniel Bullocks.
