There have been some odd inclusions on the NFL Network’s annual “Top 100″ players countdown (like Jacoby Jones being on the list at all). Whether or not one of Thursday night’s rankings falls into that category of head-scratchers depends on whom you ask.

ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- With the departure of Kyle Vanden Bosch, middle linebacker Stephen Tulloch is embracing an elevated leadership role on the Detroit Lions defense.
Tulloch, entering his eighth NFL season and third with the Lions, has been impressed during offseason workouts with the maturity and development of defensive tackle Nick Fairley.

The Detroit Lions announced today that the club has resigned linebacker Stephen Tulloch to a five-year deal. The details haven’t been announced, but the contract is believed to be worth around $40 million according to the Lions official website.
This deal ultimately marks the end of relevant free agency signings for Detroit, as this move leaves them with little cap room.
According to ProFootballTalk.com, the Detroit Lions and linebacker Stephen Tulloch are far apart in contract negotiations.
The team has to maintain the approach that put them in this position in the first place, says the veteran linebacker.
Tulloch hit Ponder in the third quarter, after Ponder had thrown an interception to Eric Wright. As Wright raced back down the field, Ponder saw the play developing and appeared to start moving toward Wright when Tulloch hit him. Quarterbacks are fair game after a turnover if they move toward the play and act as a defender.
Stephen Tulloch got penalized with a personal foul because of his block on Christian Ponder during the interception return.
I'm guessing that official thought Tulloch's block was outside the rules because Ponder didn't appear to be blocking near the return.
Just a guess, though.
