Class in session this offseason for two young Lions. 

First Hall-of-Fame TE Tony Gonzalez offered to work with T.J. Hockenson, who graciously accepted. 

And now six-time Pro Bowl WR Chad Johnson wants to help school Jeff Okudah. Johnson said he's so eager to line up with Okudah that he'll "trespass at the Lions facility if necessary." 

No trespassing necessary, not that the Lions facility is even open. Okudah, like Hockenson, was quick to accept. Looks like the two plan to meet up in Miami

With team workouts on hold due to the coronavirus, players around the NFL are doing all they can to stay sharp. D'Andre Swift, Detroit's second-round pick this year, has already begun catching passes from Matthew Stafford

And now its first-round pick is poised to learn from a once-dominant receiver. Johnson's a long way removed from torching opposing corners, but he can still show Okudah what the league's all about. 

That could prove valuable for the rookie, with the Lions expecting him to play a big role from the jump.
