The Lions have no interest in former Ravens running back Ray Rice, head coach Jim Caldwell said Wednesday at the NFL owners meetings.
“His offseason to this point has been pretty impressive,” Caldwell said Wednesday.
“It’s not going to look any different than it did last year,” Caldwell said Wednesday at the owners meetings.
“We haven’t come up with the right solution yet,” Lewand said, “but the issue isn’t going to go away.”
“Any idea that this is anywhere near the finish line is misplaced,” Lewand said Tuesday in a sit-down with Detroit reporters.
Lewand seemed to downplay the possibility of a dramatic departure from the normal uniforms; no change in color or logo is expected.
“We were comfortable making him a proposal that would have made him the highest-paid defensive player in the league …” Lewand said.
With Levy, the Lions could negotiate into the season if need be, though talks about an extension have not even started yet.

“She’s got strong opinions, and she’s extremely sharp,” Lewand said, “and she has a lot of interaction with her peers, with other owners.”
General manager Martin Mayhew disputes the notion the Lions have been relatively inactive in free agency.
