Video: Jim Schwartz's Brief Exchange With Matthew Stafford At Golf Outing

The Detroit Lions' charity golf outing was held yesterday in Dearborn. Players and coaches attended the event, meaning for the first time during the NFL lockout, they were allowed to communicate. Of course, any talk about football was banned, so the players and coaches had to be careful. The last thing they wanted was to be caught breaking NFL rules.

WXYZ's Tom Leyden caught a hilarious moment on camera between Jim Schwartz and Matthew Stafford out on the golf course, and they made sure no rules were broken. The Lions coach and Lions quarterback quickly shook hands, and Schwartz jokingly introduced himself to Stafford. Since talk between players and coaches was supposed to be limited to friendly conversation only, I think this was Schwartz's way of making fun of the ridiculousness of the lockout. Check it out:

This is definitely one of the funnier moments you will see during the NFL lockout. Then again, knowing Roger Goodell, that handshake probably cost the Lions a couple future draft picks.
