Three things fans would like to see at Lions' training camp

Three things fans would like to see at Lions’ training camp:

1. A healthy Louis Delmas. The free safety struggled from the start of training camp last year with a groin issue. He missed much of camp, but when it was game time he was there. At the players’ workouts he said he was close to 100 percent following surgery and expects to be back at full speed for camp.

2. Tons of competition at several positions. This could be the case especially on defense where the depth chart is much more wide open than on defense.

3. A few hard knocks now and then. It’s not a sign of lack of discipline when players get in fights and tussles. It’s more a sign of intensity which is a good thing. Last year’s camp ended with a big fight. There was some thought maybe it was a bad sign. But the veteran players were pleased because they knew it was a good sign that the players still had the intensity even though they knew it was the last day of camp.
