Justin Durant On Lions' Off-Field Issues: 'We Just Have To Be Smarter'

On Monday, Detroit Lions linebacker Justin Durant participated in a live chat on As expected, one of the questions he was asked during the live chat was about the Lions' off-field issues this offseason. There have been six total arrests, and some players just don't seem to be learning from their mistakes and their teammates' mistakes.

Durant's response to the question was that the team needs to be smarter as a whole. He admitted that nobody is perfect, but he is right in saying that this has been a "terrible" offseason for the Lions. Here's his full answer (via Pro Football Talk):

"We just have to be smarter regardless of age right now. I’m not one to judge because nobody is perfect but we have really been terrible at decision making this offseason. I trust the people in the front office to make the right moves," Durant wrote. "It’s tough because it brings the type of attention we do not want to our team. We want them to talk about the talent we have not about our off the field issues. We have to be smarter and make better choices."

Amen to that.
