A look back at the Lions' offseason so far

Leon Halip

What have the Detroit Lions done this offseason from a transactions standpoint? Let's take a look at their moves through June 2.

June has arrived, meaning we're about to enter the final stretch of the NFL offseason. Free agency and the draft are long gone, and now teams are getting a chance to actually take the field for OTAs. For the Detroit Lions, there is one more set of OTAs, and there will soon be a mandatory minicamp and a brief vacation before training camp arrives in late July. That will basically signal the end of their 2014 offseason.

With the offseason starting to wind down, let's take a look back at what the Lions have done since the end of the 2013 regular season. Below is a rundown of all their transactions through June 2.
