Lions LB Tahir Whitehead is expected to play on the outside this season.
Whitehead served as the Lions' middle linebacker last season, but first-round pick Jarrad Davis is expected to push him back outside, where Whitehead has had more success in his career. Whitehead is entering the final year of his contract, and the Detroit Free Press' Dave Birkett believes he is "playing for a new deal elsewhere next year." May 4 - 10:07 AM
