More physical than Steelers camp

 Larry Foote spent the last seven seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers, but apparently their training camps were nothing like the first few days of Lions camp under new coach Jim Schwartz.
“It’s a lot more physical (here) I’ll tell you that. They’re dysfunctional around here, they’re intense, they’re fired up. That’s the way they should be in training camp,’’ Foote said, meaning all of that as a compliment.
 He said the level of physical play isn’t even close in comparison and the Lions have yet to practice in full pads.
 “Coach Schwartz is going to take care of us. He’s not one of those old school coaches, he wants us to be fresh going into the season. That’s smart, that’s the best approach,’’ Foote said.
The veteran linebacker also has a message for Lions’ fans.
  “Tell the fans to stop bringing Steelers stuff. I’m not signing Steelers stuff, that’s in the past,’’ Foote said after today’s morning session.
  He suggested that fans buy Lions gear and then he’d be happy to sign that.
