We are aware of the incident involving Nick Fairley.
We hold all of our players to a high standard of behavior and the recent charges against Nick and Mikel Leshoure are not consistent with those standards. We are extremely disappointed.
We will continue to gather information and will have further comment at the appropriate time.
Ladies and gentlemen, your 2011 Detroit Lions first round pick:
I'm not exactly thrilled about drug laws in the US, but it is against the law. Fairley is now the third member of our 2011 draft class to get busted smoking up (the other two being, of course, Mikel Leshoure and Johnny Culbreath). My question: what the hell is going on, and why are our players doing this kind of stupid crap? Surely the team's legal department has other things to concern itself with than foolish behavior like this.
