The Detroit Lions have reportedly cut loose three coaches on their staff.
Jefferson speaks from experience. He thought his post-football life would be great. He had saved and invested his money wisely. He had a young family to tend to. He figured he could happily live out his days fishing and, as he put it, “living the salt life.”
Lions wide receivers coach Shawn Jefferson doesn’t think concussions are triggering the recent rash of suicides among former players.
Shawn Jefferson wanted to send a message to his players. So during training camp last season he shocked everybody by coming out in shoulder pads and worked with the wide receivers.
