Detroit Lions Begin Voluntary Minicamp


After spending the last two weeks with voluntary workouts limited to off-field strength and conditioning, the Detroit Lions got back on the field this afternoon as the team’s voluntary minicamp got underway.

Players are not required to attend per the collective bargaining agreement but much has already been made about Ndamukong Suh’s absence over the past two weeks. Concerns over his absence grow as the team is now able to work with the new coaching staff on the field.

The team put out the following video clip of Jim Caldwell taking the field as head coach of the Lions for the first time. It also gives a little look at some of the other players on hand for today’s activities.

Mrs. Martha Ford, the team’s new owner following the death of husband William Clay Ford, was also in attendance.

This voluntary minicamp last through April 24.
