Lions | Thornton turns down offer

Mon, 13 Jul 2009 05:46:10 -0700

John Niyo, of the Detroit News, reports free-agent DL John Thornton (Bengals) said during an interview with Sirius NFL Radio he recently turned down an offer from the Detroit Lions. Thornton is now unsure if he will play anywhere in 2009. "I would probably have to gain weight," Thornton said. "That was the situation with Detroit (and) Coach Schwartz, who coached me in Tennessee. I went up there and we kind of agreed to a deal and a few days later I sort of backed out of it for various reasons. I would have had to gain about 20 pounds actually. He wanted me to be pretty big in the middle, so I would just have to start eating a lot. I'm in pretty good shape."
