ALLEN PARK (WWJ/AP) – As quickly as you can say draft pick, the Detroit Lions are getting back to the everyday work quickly.

Defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch said paid workouts would start Monday at the franchise’s facility. Team president Tom Lewand said organized team activities would begin two days later.

“Guys are scrambling to make plans to get back by Monday,” Vanden Bosch said in a telephone interview.

Lewand said the team reached out to everyone under contract Thursday, soon after the NFL assured teams and players they could resume some football operations, and he expected a “good number” of players to work out at Lions headquarters Friday.

Vanden Bosch had been advising teammates to work out on their own this week while the league and courts worked out the details of the lifted lockout. The NFL still hopes the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Louis will restore the lockout.

Lewand didn’t know yet how the league would handle trades and free agency.

“We’ve been notified that there’ll be more information forthcoming,” he said.
