Lions Declined To Give DT Nick Fairley Playbook

When the lockout briefly was lifted last week, there was talk that those taken in the first round of the NFL draft could receive playbooks and interact with their new coaches – a courtesy that couldn’t be extended to the rest of those drafted in the later rounds because the lockout was put back into place during the middle of the second round.

But the Detroit Free Press writes that the Lions didn’t bother getting DT Nick Fairley any new reading material. And if it seems like a curious decision coach Jim Schwartz feels he has a perfectly good explanation. “Our blood pressure’s pretty low on stuff like that,” Schwartz said. “We don’t want to rush things. You give somebody a set of instructions without being able to communicate with them, it really might not do a whole lot of good so we haven’t done a whole lot.”
