ESPN.com is reporting that the Lions are the latest team to get penalized for violating the rules on offseason practices. The NFLPA usually files a complaint with the league based on players reporting the violations.
This is a somewhat shocking development because the violations are usually looked past unless there is discontent between the players and coaches.
The players are not permitted to be at team facilities during the revoked practices, but they still receive full pay. This could set the Lions back a few days in training camp as Coach Schwartz has repeatedly mentioned he wanted to have 95% of the offensive and defensive playbooks installed before training camp.
