Lions Notes: 'Great Things Ahead For Matt Stafford'

  • Jim Schwartz talked about how having a franchise quarterback in Matthew Stafford affects the Lions' approach to the draft.
  • Schwartz said there are "great things ahead for Matt Stafford."
  • North Carolina linebacker Bruce Carter is doing his rehab (from an ACL injury) at the same facility in Florida as Stafford.
  • The deadline to appeal the guilty ruling about tampering for the Lions was this past Monday. There was no word on if the Lions decided to file an appeal, and they had no comment about it on Monday.
  • Tom Kowalski wrote earlier this week that the Lions' coaching staff felt like they did nothing wrong as it relates to the tampering charge. Jim Schwartz came out and said the wrong decision was made while in Indianapolis, but Martin Mayhew's comments made it sound like the Lions were ready to move on. Perhaps the tampering charge wasn't from something Gunther Cunningham did and Mayhew knows more about what happened than the coaches. 
  • Zack Follett said that he will probably go through another series of tests before training camp to make sure he can get on the field.
  • Kyle Vanden Bosch has been working out non-stop this offseason to get back to full health and full strength, and he has been doing so with linebacker Keith Bulluck.
  • Jason Hanson is the Lions' 2010 Ed Block Courage Award winner.
  • STACK.com has a video of Ndamukong Suh taking part in the Gatorade Athlete Testing series.
  • Speaking of Suh, he will be on NFL Network at both 6 and 7 p.m. on Monday.
  • Plaxico Burress will be out of prison in June.
