It has been roughly seven months since the Lions last suited up for a football game, and even though the NFL did provide teases through the draft and mini-camps we here at the Detroit Lions Breakdown Podcast have been patiently waiting for football to return… it finally has. Erik and Joe spend this week chatting about training camp.
Another week of summer, another slow week for the Lions. Luckily Erik and Joe have plenty to discuss with Erik’s latest series about heading into training camp. Once again, the listeners deliver with a bunch of excellent mailbag questions.
This week Erik and Joe are treated with a visit by special guest Jeremy Reisman, the managing editor at Pride of Detroit. Erik and Jeremy have spent a lot of time together at the Allen Park facility and don’t often share the same viewpoint of what they’ve seen on the field. In this episode, they share stories from behind the scenes from over the last year and discuss the state of the Lions current roster.
Well over a week has passed since the draft and things are settling down across the NFL. That gives Erik and Joe the opportunity to discuss the current roster construction and the impending battles to look forward to, or lament, in training camp.
