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."
