The Detroit Lions players, at the strong behest of the NFLPA, are not participating in the scheduled voluntary workouts this week. The Lions players are one of many sets around the NFL that won’t attend the traditional kickoff of the veteran offseason.

The decision is costing some Lions players some money. Three Detroit players have workout bonuses built into their contracts, and not participating this week means the trio will sacrifice the money.

Linebacker Jamie Collins loses the most. Skipping the workouts with the rest of the team will cost Collins $200,000. Two Day 2 picks from the 2019 NFL draft, linebacker Jahlani Tavai and safety Will Harris, are the other Lions who will miss workout bonuses. Tavai loses $50,000 while Harris nullifies the $30,000 bonus.
