Kalif Raymond Celebrates Surprise Contract Extension with Detroit Lions

Following Monday’s training camp practice, Kalif Raymond spoke to the media about his surprise contract extension with the Lions.

“I found out almost a couple of hours before you guys,” Raymond told reporters after Monday’s practice. “I’m just very thankful. My agent Hadley (Engelhard) said ‘I got one (gift) dude on your birthday, man, but I got a birthday present for you,’ and I was like, ‘Yeah, what could this possibly be?’ I much appreciate it. It helped my family out tremendously.”

“I come out here every day with the same mindset. Just be the best version of myself. And honestly, I don’t think that changes,” Raymond said. “I think I can still come out here, man, and just be the best man I can be, the best teammate I can be, and honestly, just keep putting my best foot forward.”

“I think at the end of the day, the biggest thing I appreciate the most is the respect from my teammates and the trust of my coaches. And I think no matter what, I gotta come out here every day and earn that. And that’s my mentality.”
