Lions' Stafford works out with Calvin Johnson, Ochocino
This and that:
— Matthew Stafford tweeted today reporting that he had just finished a good workout. Said he was throwing to Calvin Johnson and Chad Ochocinco who has declared his time with the Bengals is over. Wouldn’t expect to see Ochocinco in Detroit, think the three of them just met up in Atlanta to work out. Stafford is three months out from surgery. Expect him to be at full-speed for training camp whenever that may be.
— Sad to see that Jason Hunter, DE for the Broncos who spent 2009 with the Lions, was allegedly stabbed by his girlfriend in Detroit. He’s the second NFL player to be stabbed in a domestic dispute in the last five days. Miami’s Brandon Marshall was the other. Hunter , who played at Appalachian State, spent his first three NFL seasons with Green Bay before signing as a free agent with the Lions in May 2009. Reportedly Hunter is in stable condition.
— Lions are holding a draft party at the Hard Rock Cafe in Detroit on Friday from 4-8 p.m. If arrangements can be made, they’ll introduce their first-round draft pick to fans. You won’t see any coaches or management though. They’ll be hard at work at the Lions practice facility and headquarters in Allen Park.
