The Detroit Lions enter another draft season with a need at wide receiver. Titus Young’s attitude bought him a ticket out of town while Nate Burleson and Ryan Broyles suffered season ending injuries.
Fortunately, those following the offseasons of Broyles and Burleson via social media have been given plenty of reason to be optimistic about the prospects of both returning to contribute to the 2013 Lions sooner rather than later.
Broyles’ wife sent out the following tweet and photo of Ryan getting in a little rehab work while waiting for a ride at the airport:

Nate Burleson has obviously been putting in work as he works back from a broken leg. He’s already doing some pretty impressive things. For instance, this video:
I’ve never broken my leg and I certainly can’t do that. Then again, I’m not a professional athlete. Or in shape.
There are still four and a half months until training camp starts. Here’s to hoping what looks like good progress continues.
