Lions Coach Schwartz does not have a depth chart, nor does he plan to have one anytime soon. He said he would have one for the first exhibition, but only because he had to tell which players would play when.
Daunte Culpepper still looks excellent physically. He said he has been around 260 pounds -- more than 30 pounds less than he weighed last year -- and is 100% going into training camp for the first time since 2004, when he had the best year of his career and put up huge numbers for Minnesota.
As far as the competition between Culpepper and Matthew Stafford, the first pick in this year’s NFL draft, both players made some nice throws today and both had nice things to say about each other. Coach Jim Schwartz said no one would read too much into one practice.
