The Taste of the Lions event showcases food, football

 The Taste of the Lions brought food and football together Tuesday at Ford Field.

Twenty-six restaurants from around metro Detroit had their best dishes on display for a good cause.

Proceeds from the third annual event go to the partnership between Detroit Lions and Eastern Market's "Meet Up and Eat Up" program.

FOX 2's Jennifer Hammond spoke with players like Matthew Stafford, Darryl Tapp and Sam Martin about the food, and about the off-season.
