Leshoure and his Lions' teammates get to know each other
Rookie running back Mikel Leshoure was one of the rookies who took advantage of the Lions’ offseason workouts last week at Detroit Country Day.
The second-round pick out of Illinois got one-on-one training from quarterback Matthew Stafford as did rookie wide receiver Titus Young.
For the rookies not only do they have to learn the playbook when training camp start, but they also have to get to know their teammates. They both got a jumpstart on that through the workout sessions.
“I’m really happy to get out here with these guys. You guys are here you can see the competitive camaraderie coming together. Just to get out here and get a one-on-one feeling with these guys and get to know them personally is the best thing you can do. You can’t get that type of relationship over the phone,’’ Leshoure said.
