Lions to open offseason training program on April 15

Andrew Weber-US PRESSWIRE

The Detroit Lions are going to begin their offseason training program in mid-April.

The Detroit Lions are going to begin their 2013 offseason training program on April 15, according to Pro Football Talk. The training program is really the start of preparations for the 2013 season for players. They will return to Allen Park to work out and get ready for organized team activities and a mandatory minicamp.

Speaking of that mandatory minicamp, Pro Football Talk reports that it will be held June 11-13 for the Lions. That will mark the close of the offseason training program, giving players a month and a half or so away from the team before training camp begins at the end of July.

The offseason training program essentially gives players a chance to get back into the routine of working out with the team before the OTAs start in May. Specific dates for OTAs will be released later in the offseason, but look for them to begin toward the end of May based on last year's offseason schedule.
