The Lions are using Tahir Whitehead at all three linebacker spots during OTAs.
Whitehead has been a strong-side linebacker his first two seasons, so the increased versatility should help his roster chances. The Lions drafted Kyle Van Noy to play SAM, and Stephen Tulloch and DeAndre Levy are locked in as starters. Whitehead is behind Ashlee Palmer for sub-package snaps, but could be a candidate to back up at middle linebacker. Jun 15 - 3:05 PM
