Lions Players Told To Report Monday For OTAs Starting Wednesday

Class is almost back in session.

With the NFL announcing that things like OTAs can begin starting tomorrow, the Detroit Lions are already planning to get their offseason workouts started. According to X-A-M Sports, an NFL agency, Lions players have been informed that they should report to the facility in Allen Park on Monday. Why? Well, organized training activities are set to begin on Wednesday.

Basically, as soon as the 2011 NFL Draft is behind them, coaches are going to be ready to start preparing for next season on the field. All offseason has been spent worrying about the draft with everything else on hold, so now they finally will have a chance to get the team together for workouts. That is great news, and I'm glad the Lions are gearing up to get things started next week.

Of course, this is all based on the NFL's current plan for next week. If a stay is granted and the lockout returns, then plans for OTAs will have to be scrapped. That seems unlikely, though, so get ready for some actual football news next week.
