JOINT STATEMENT BY THE NFL AND NFL PLAYERS ASSOCIATION 
                 The NFL Management Council and the NFL Players Association have resolved a complaint by the Players Association against the Detroit Lions concerning violations of the Collective Bargaining Agreement’s off-season workout rules.                  NFL Executive Vice President Harold Henderson and Players Association Executive Director Gene Upshaw have determined that the Lions violated rules pertaining to the scheduling of off-season activities. Â
                 As a result, the Lions will forfeit two days of their off-season program (Monday and Tuesday, May 8-9). Lions’ players are not permitted to be at the facility on those two days, but will be paid for the sessions. The Club’s off-season workouts will resume on Thursday, May 11.                Â
