Lions' Stafford on NFL lockout: 'I don't waste time thinking about it'
Like most NFL players, the Lions are a bit frustrated. They would rather be preparing for the season with Lions’ coaches calling the shots. But that can’t happen until the NFL lockout is lifted. The next hearing is set for Friday but that doesn’t mean a decision will be made then.
Most of the Lions said they don’t follow the situation that closely.
Cliff Avril said he’ll know there’s a solution when his agent calls him and tells him to get to work.
Matthew Stafford has similar feelings.
“Somebody’s going to tell me when I’m supposed to be, where I’m supposed to be,’’ Stafford said. “I don’t waste time thinking about it.’’
The Lions have scheduled a follow-up to their informal workouts the week of May 16. Starting Monday, June 6, they will be back at Country Day, working out for four days that week.
