Fulmer sounds like good fit for Yankees
Boone said he wasn’t particularly optimistic anything would change about the schedule, however.
Not necessarily, he said, but hopeful that everyone behind the scenes is taking the product, is taking player safety and all that into account when these kinds of decisions do get made.

Caldwell immediately summoned Lions general manager Bob Quinn and president Rod Wood, and Johnson said he talked to both men that day and later had phone conversations with most of the Ford family that owns the team.
It had to surprise him, cause then he told me to wait around and he got the GM and stuff,Johnson said. But I knew there was going to be a problem once Rod talked to me and the first thing out of his mouth was like, ‘Did you earn all your bonus?’ I was like, ‘Oh, shit.’ I knew right then it was going to be a problem. I was like, ‘All right, I see how it’s going to be.’
Johnson retired as the Lions’ all-time leading receiver with 731 catches for 11,619 yards and 83 touchdowns. Though he’s just 32 years old, he said doesn’t think he could play a game now even if he wanted to because of the toll the sport took on his body.
I don’t (think so), man, cause I get up from the bed sometimes in the morning, I’m just like, I shuffle across the ground cause I can’t bend my ankles,Johnson said. That was my problem when I played, just ankle’s always stuck or swelled up, I can’t flex them. If you can’t flex your ankles then you’re just running flat-footed all the time.
