After unveiling a fancy new set of uniforms Thursday night, Detroit Lions president Rod Wood may have let an important piece of league information slip out.

When asked what's next on his agenda following the jersey release, Wood said he's looking toward the unveiling of next season's schedule - which is apparently happening next week.

"I don't have anything else other than getting this renovation done," Wood said, according to ESPN's Michael Rothstein. "That's the thing I got to focus on getting done before the season starts.

"The schedule coming out next Thursday will be a focus, too."
