One thing you can count on with the Detroit Lions is that they are never, ever boring. Follow the latest news including injuries, roster moves and more here daily from Oakland Press beat writer Paula Pasche. Plus you'll find regular commentary about the team.


Three things you will not see at Lions' training camp

Three things you won’t see in Lions’ training camp:

1. Animosity between players, coaches and management following the NFL’s lockout of the players. Word from all sides is that they are all in this together to put together a winning team. Didn’t hear one nasty word from players during their workouts. In fact the way many of them see it, the coaches have been caught in the middle.

2. Work without a purpose. In their spare time — and they’ve had plenty of it — you know the coaching staff has revised, then re-revised their plans for a training camp that follows a locked-out offseason devoid of OTAs or minicamps. They’ll get the best out of the players without over-working them.

3. You won’t see everyone who will be on the roster at the end of the season. GM Martin Mayhew never quits, he’s looks to improve the roster all through the season. A few examples from last year: LB Bobby Carpenter, K Dave Rayner and CB Nathan Vasher.
