Lions' Mayhew prepares for every scenario
With a potential lockout of NFL players looming, this could be anything but a normal season for NFL general managers.
Lions GM Martin Mayhew is preparing for every scenario. This isn’t surprising if you’ve seen him operate the last two seasons.
Questions linger about salary cap and how many seasons it will take to become a free agent. That’s just the beginning.
Mayhew won’t comment on specifics regarding a possible lockout, but talked about preparation just in case.
“What it means is we have to prepare for every eventuality and for every scenario. It means do more work in terms of preparation, and we’re fine with that, we’re doing that,’’ Mayhew said.
“We’re prepared for whatever the system is, we plan on being ready for it and being able to implement a strategy for it. It’s a little more work for us be we’re up to the task,’’ he added.
