Matthew Stafford To Throw Passes To Titus Young, Calvin Johnson (Updated)

This offseason, Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson have spent a lot of time in Atlanta working out together. One time Chad Ochocinco joined them for a throwing session. These sessions have given Stafford a chance to work on passes for the 2011 season and get his timing down with a teammate.

On Thursday, Stafford added another teammate into the mix with rookie Titus Young flying to Atlanta to work out with his fellow Lions players. He was one of a few guys working out with Stafford and Johnson.

Young posted a picture of himself with Johnson following the workout and seemed excited to finally get a chance to work out with his new teammate. I'm sure he was also excited to catch passes from Stafford and start working on getting his timing down with his new quarterback.

UPDATE: Stafford tweeted a few minutes ago that he missed Johnson and Young today but will definitely throw with them on Friday and Saturday.
