Waddle has felt ready to begin running for some time, but he is sticking with the prescribed schedule.
"It’s hard to hold back," Waddle said, per NFL.com. "I’m not going to lie. I’m doing everything I’m supposed to do. There’s no point in pushing it and doing something stupid and make everything you did worth nothing. I’m pushing it as much as I can push it."
His team drafted offensive linemen Manny Ramirez and Laken Tomlinson in the first round. Just what the doctor ordered - if that doctor is Stafford, who can certainly visualize the difference between the offensive line that will be protecting him in 2015 and the one that did not last season.
The Lions allowed 45 sacks a year ago - only 10 teams surrendered more. It was the highest number of times Stafford wound up on his back during his six-year career.
"Since the week before the draft, to the week after, it was like night and day," Stafford told MLive.com. "We just have so many more bodies, and so many more guys who are capable of playing well."
Wootton registered 16 tackles and one sack in 15 games for the Vikings last season.
When fans ask
"I ask them if they like watching the games," Tulloch said. "They say, 'Yeah.' They ask, 'Are you healthy?' I say, 'Do you like watching football?' They say, 'Yeah.' I say, 'Yeah, I'm healthy.'
Tulloch tore his ACL while celebrating a sack in Week 3 and he missed the rest of the season. He said the offseason has gone well and he is looking forward to playing in 2015.
"Man, it's exciting," he said. "I'm excited about it. It's a blessing to be able to bounce back the way that I have and to be able to feel as good as I feel to be able to get out there, run around and do my thing."
Dawson played in seven games and caught two passes for Tampa Bay in 2013, but did not see any action last year for the Lions.
