Still more work to do
Time is closing in. Players report at 4 p.m. Friday for meetings and then will start training camp workouts on Saturday afternoon.
Four draftees have yet to be signed.
Still without contracts are first-round tight end Brandon Pettigrew, second-round free safety Louis Delmas, third-round wide receiver Derrick Williams and fourth-round defensive tackle Sammie Hill.
It would be huge news if Matthew Stafford hadnt signed, but the Lions took care of that before they drafted him.
Coach Jim Schwartz said this week he expects everyone who is signed to be in camp on time. He will wait until physicals are complete to comment on any injuries that could keep players out at the start of camp.
Stay tuned for updates.
