Nate Burleson: Detroit ‘not the most desirable place’

Here’s a nice backhander by former Seattle Seahawk Nate Burleson.

The receiver was in Seattle this week, where he played for the Seahawks, when he saluted his Lions teammates during a TV interview for last week’s player workouts.

Their camp’s attendance was much better than similar workouts for other teams, even though it was in Detroit.

Said Burleson: “Seeing about 35 guys there working out — this time of year, in Detroit is not the most desirable place, so you got guys flying in, paying for their own hotel, paying for rental cars — so that just kind of shows the dedication and really the direction of our team right now.”

Not desirable? You’d think a guy from Seattle would appreciate all this rain.
