Monday Notes: Lions Get Ready for Final Minicamp

New, comments
  • The Lions' last mandatory minicamp session will take place from Tuesday to Thursday.  After that, players will basically have a month off before they have to head back to Allen Park in preparation for the start of training camp.  Of course, most players will be busy conditioning during their break, but there are no organized team practices during the time off.
  • Remember how there was some concern over Matthew Stafford's marketability when he was first drafted?  Well, it doesn't seem like he's having a problem with endorsements, as he already has deals with Axe Hair, Sprint, and "various" card companies.
  • The next edition of the Lions Review Radio Show is tonight from 7-9 at the Buffalo Wild Wings in Canton.
  • Thanks to a combination of new players and coaches that have experienced winning before, Matthew Stafford thinks the team's attitude has been great so far this offseason.
  • Kevin Smith will be training in Miami while he waits for training camp to begin.
  • Punter Nick Harris is glad Stan Kwan was retained by Jim Schwartz, saying that the special teams unit was "pretty solid last year in a lot of areas."  Jason Hanson was pretty solid last year, but that's about it for special teams.  Harris wasn't bad by any means, but the punt/kick coverage and punt/kick returns weren't impressive to me.
  • The Lions have set up a Facebook and Twitter page. (HT: Lions Gab)
  • Matthew Stafford's makeover by Maria Sharapova was included in the latest issue of ESPN the Magazine, which Sharapova is on the cover of.
