Jim Schwartz Tells Lions To Not Let Anything Hold Them Back

The Detroit Lions began their voluntary offseason conditioning program today. This was the first time the team had met together in quite some time, and it was head coach Jim Schwartz's first chance to address the offseason marijuana issues of Johnny Culbreath, Mikel Leshoure and Nick Fairley. Schwartz didn't meet with the media to share what he told the team, but Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford relayed Schwartz's message.

"We've come so far. We don't want anything to hold us back," Stafford said. "I think everybody knows that. We're a mature team. Obviously, some of the guys having trouble off the field were younger guys. They'll figure it out. We'll be there to help them along."

Stafford sounds like he has been in the league for 10 years. Despite only being drafted a few years ago, Stafford is already one of the biggest leaders in the Lions' locker room and is someone younger players can look up to for how you should carry yourself as an NFL player.
