By ESPN.com staff
Dan Pompei of the Chicago Tribune writes that the Bears have plenty of defensive ends to choose from with their first-round pick.
Defensive tackle Anthony Adams handled his release from the Bears with class, writes Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times.
If the Lions want to roll the dice and gamble on a high-risk, high-reward player, they should draft Arizona State linebacker Vontaze Burfict, writes Chris McCosky of The Detroit News.
Detroit Lions Hall of Famer Barry Sanders is divorcing his wife, Lauren Sanders, after more than 11 years of marriage.

The Packers plan to keep Charles Woodson at cornerback, Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Coach Mike McCarthy vows the Packers will be better at tackling saying, "If guys don't tackle, they're not playing. They're getting just pulled off the field," McGinn reports.
The draft-day landscape has been altered for the Vikings now that the Rams are interested in trading the second overall pick.
Unless the Vikings swing a trade, they won’t be picking in the right spot to make Dontari Poe their defensive line anchor of the future.
