Training camp is officially over for the Detroit Lions. The team held its final practice of training camp on Tuesday, signifying the end of this particular section of the NFL calendar. They will now start to transition to a schedule that aligns with the setup during the regular season as they bring the second half of the preseason to a close. Then will come the final round of cuts before the regular season finally begins.
On Tuesday, the Lions had two notable visitors for their final training camp practice. Detroit Tigers pitcher Max Scherzer and actor Jeff Daniels both stopped by to take in the practice.
Max Scherzer on Calvin Johnson: "I think it's the same thing watching him as watching Miguel (Cabrera)"— Dave Birkett (@davebirkett) August 20, 2013
Scherzer, it turns out, played quarterback for two years in high school before deciding to turn his focus strictly to baseball. Considering he currently has an 18-1 record for the Tigers, I'd say he made the right decision.
