Broyles on Day 3 of the NFLPA Rookie Premiere: “I love vacation, but I’m ready to get back in there and put in work.”

“It was a great time, being out there with the rookies, the guys that are in the same position as you entering the league. It was total hospitality, we really enjoyed our time; we were right on Hollywood boulevard, saw a lot of interesting things there. It was great weather, great people watching, that’s something me and MaryBeth like to do, so it was a lot different from back home in Oklahoma. It was so busy. Overall, it was just a great time.

“I enjoyed my time there and all of the events they put together. The NFLPA did a great job of hosting this event and we got some great gifts.

“I learned a lot, got to experience first hand some of the guys that were in the league that came and talked to us in the meeting. I felt like that was the most important thing, for me at least, to learn as much as I can. I took a lot of notes, so I won’t be like 60-70 percent of the guys that leave the league broke. That’s not the category I want to fall in to. I feel like that was the most beneficial thing for me.

“I’m at the airport right now, ready to get back to work. Football is my first love. I love vacation, but I’m ready to get back in there and put in work. I’m ready to get back to Detroit.”

    Still a surprise pick !!! – defense for Detroit is so important – and has shown to be an achilles for the Lions. New Orleans playoff debacle was the premiere illustration of their main problem —- but…… maybe, just maybe this Broyles acquisition could pan out to be a very wise choice. He seems to have the heart and will to play and these are the types of guys I like, hope the best for the TEAM….TEAM is everything for success…..

    The Lions did well to get another receiver at the draft. They have two studs in the stable in Johnson and Pettigrew, if Broyles can catch like them it’ll definitely open up the running game. Too many dropped balls last season, and Stafford was rushed a lot-Rieff addresses this-shoring up the blind side. As long as the backs stay healthy, Detroit’s offensive could be a bright spot, just as their defense should be.
    Not every pass can be thrown to Johnson. If Young’s hands are better than last year, these four receivers should fare well against any D.

    Nice drafting Lions, lets turn potential success into literal success.

    Though Broyles was a surprise pick to fans, Mayhew and Schwartz have earned the right to build this team their way—with BUILD being the operative word. And, by far the most important piece to this team is Matt Stafford. Having an elite level QB who is only 24 (say it slowly: twenty-four…) is a luxury that I don’t think most people grasp. It means your window as a team in wide open. Also means you don’t have to reach for second level talent to fill priority needs.

    Whether we agree with the pick or not, one thing we can all agree on. For the first time in a generation the Lions have a blueprint and are following it with impunity.
