Rookie Ryan Broyles Learns NFL Life the Hard Way From Schwartz

Rookie Ryan Broyles, fresh off the non-football injury list, lined up for his first rep in the 7-on-7 drills Sunday. In his excitement, he was slow to get his chin strap buckled, Chris McCosky of the Detroit News reports.

In front of a large gathering of season-ticket holders and media, Broyles got an R-rated earful from coach Jim Schwartz about being snap-ready when you get to the line of scrimmage. It earned a round of applause from the fans.

“That’s part of football,” said Broyles, the Lions’ second round pick who has worked himself back from ACL surgery on Nov. 21. “You love that when a coach gets on you. It means he cares. That’s a good thing.”
