Lions | Nick Fairley's weight gain responsible for demotion

Wed, 13 Aug 2014 14:58:54 -0700

Detroit Lions DT Nick Fairley has reportedly added 10 pounds to his frame since the start of training camp, which has led to his demotion in favor of DT C.J. Mosley. The Lions declined to pick up Fairley's 2015 option earlier this year as a way to motivate him to show up this offseason in better shape. Mosley has looked exceptional at times with the first-team, and he rededicated himself to eating cleaner and sleeping longer in the offseason.

Lions | Nick Fairley sees contract situation as positive

Sat, 31 May 2014 08:46:52 -0700

Detroit Lions DT Nick Fairley said he sees the team not picking up his fifth-year option as a positive because it will allow him to get a bigger contract faster than the other first-round picks in his draft class. "I kind of said it's a good thing, kind of," Fairley said. "It kind of will put me into a new contract earlier than (other) guys coming out in my draft. They're picking up guys' fifth-year option, that gets me into a new contract. That's the way I look at it."
