Thursday Notes: Attention Brett Favre, Ndamukong Suh Is Coming For You

  • Lions rookies and veterans report for training camp on July 30.
  • Ndamukong Suh wants to sack Brett Favre the most of any quarterback in the league.
  • Kevin Smith is "definitely" going to be involved in team-related drills next week, although he isn't planning on doing too much. Smith is also hoping to be ready to practice when training camp gets underway at the end of next month.
  • Below is the statement released by the NFL and NFLPA on the Lions' CBA violation.

    The NFL Management Council and the NFL Players Association have determined that the Detroit Lions violated the Collective Bargaining Agreement’s off-season workout rules pertaining to the intensity and tempo of drills conducted on one of the Club’s organized team activity days ("OTA days").

    As a result, the Lions will forfeit two days of their off-season program (June 21stand 22nd), which had previously been designated as OTA days.  Lions’ players are not permitted to be at the facility on those days, but will be paid for the sessions.  The Club cannot reschedule the cancelled OTA days.

    Jon Jansen, who is the Lions' union representative, said that he didn't file a complaint and doesn't think a teammate would have done so without talking to him first. 
  • Matthew Stafford answered some fans' questions on the Lions' official website.
