Rookie TE Pettigrew works well with Stafford

Detriot Free Press - [Full Article]

With a big 6-foot-5 frame, a penchant for blocking and impressive hands, Pettigrew could be the complete tight end any team would treasure. During a recent Lions practice, first-round pick TE Brandon Pettigrew was a favorite target of QB Matthew Stafford's and the two seemed to work well together.

"It just happened like that," Pettigrew said. "I'm glad we're kind of getting a feel for each other and a good connection going into this thing and having a good relationship. That'll be good."

Pettigrew has been particularly impressed with Stafford's on-field maturity.
