Matthew Stafford went skydiving during his honeymoon in New Zealand. DeAndre Levy would be proud. (Stafford has also been busy training even though he's currently on his honeymoon.)
- The slow motion booth at Stafford's wedding featured a lot of funny moments with current and former Detroit Lions players.
- This was George Johnson's reaction to the news that the Lions are disputing his offer sheet with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers:
Still waiting........... (jeopardy music in the background) lmbo, get even more time with the kidz yes I'm going #crazy— George Johnson (@GeoJohns92) April 13, 2015
- It's unclear what local station will broadcast the Lions' preseason games this year after the team and WXYZ mutually opted out of their deal. WXYZ had served as the Lions' preseason home for the last few years, but now this year's exhibition TV plans are up in the air for three games. (We already know that one game will be nationally broadcast on CBS.)
- SB Nation's latest 2015 NFL mock draft has the Lions going with Pittsburgh offensive tackle T.J. Clemmings in the first round and Ohio State defensive tackle Michael Bennett in the second round.
- The NFL's regular-season schedule should be announced next week:
Now hearing that the 2015 regular-season schedule is currently set to be released on Thursday, April 23, but the date could change.— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) April 13, 2015
