Lions | Barry Note

Curt Sylvester reports for the Free Press former Detroit Lions RB Barry Sanders recently told his agent, Peter Schaffer, "I want to play . . . golf." He had been asked by the team if he was willing to come back to the Lions. Coach Marty Mornhinweg recently told Schaffer that the team would be willing to trade Sanders if he wanted to make a comeback with another team. The story of the Lions willing to trade Sanders spread quickly on Friday. In the past, the Lions had said they would welcome Sanders back but never said they would accommodate him if he wanted to play for another team. Although he doesn't expect Sanders will change his mind, Schaffer said he never would try to guess his intentions.
