Lions notes: 2013 NFL schedule to be announced on Thursday

Lions notes looks at the release of the 2013 NFL schedule, Pat Summerall, the start of the offseason training program and much more.

  • The NFL's 2013 schedule will be released at 8 p.m. ET on Thursday (April 18). I'm most interested in seeing the Detroit Lions' Thanksgiving opponent and how many nationally televised games they get. What about you?
  • Lions president Tom Lewand released a statement on the passing of longtime NFL announcer Pat Summerall, who was actually drafted by the Lions way back in 1952.
  • Matthew Stafford met with the media on Tuesday and had some funny answers to a few questions.
  • Reggie Bush recently shared his thoughts on being a member of the Lions and what his life is like right now with a baby on the way.
  • The Lions' offseason training program officially began on Monday. Here's a look at some tweets from Lions players after the first workout:
  • The following Lions players are set to earn workout bonuses this offseason:
  • This is an interesting stat:
  • Speaking of interesting stats, get a load of this from Peter King: Jason Hanson, who was a second-round pick in 1992, played in 327 games for the Lions over the course of 21 seasons. The top three picks in the 1992 NFL Draft only played in a combined 278 games in the NFL.
  • Titus Young is once again acting very strange on Twitter. How so? Well, he keeps tweeting things out only to later go back and delete everything from his account. One example is a tweet that included an apology to Lions fans. That was deleted, as was a tweet to Barry Sanders. Even more bizarre is Young's current Twitter bio.


    "Looking to play defense." Okay then.

  • The Jacksonville Jaguars have narrowed their options for the No. 2 pick down to two unknown players.
