Lions LB Caleb Campbell back for OTAs

It appears LB Caleb Campbell will be present and accounted for during the Lions’ workouts and OTAs this week.

He sent a tweet on Sunday morning that said, “hello detroit.” A tweet on Friday said, “Gotta love sitting down with Generals of the US Army. Great meeting. Detroit this weekend...”

So if you put the pieces together ...

Coach Jim Schwartz said on Thursday that Campbell would be back, but he would not give a timetable.

Campbell is in the oddest of situations because he played for Army and then had to give two years of active service once he graduated.

The first lieutenant participated in rookie minicamp a few weeks back and was bigger, stronger and faster than he had been in 2008 when the Lions drafted him. He has a legitimate shot to make the roster if he can make all the workouts.

I am Very Happy to see Caleb Campbell Back! This Man is going to come in REAL Handy This year.
I like the fact that he can Play the LBer position.
However I wouldn't give up on him playing the Safety position Either.
I Bet that he would be one heck of a good safety NOW!
And I hope that he doesn't take the position From Zack Follett Unless he is positivally Better than Zack And that there is NO Mistaking That Fact.
Because After What I have seen With Zack at the LBer position I really believe that Zack Follett Could be in the Criss Spielman Type of Potential.( He isn't there yet)
However having Caleb on the roster would be great for Backing up all the Lbers.
I would think that Caleb could play any of the Lber positions.
Giving the others the rest that they will Need at times in the games.
Go Caleb!
