Detroit Lions Announce 2011 Captains

The Detroit Lions have named their captains for the 2011 season. Just like last year, there are two on offense, one on defense and one on special teams:

Offense: QB Matthew Stafford and C Dominic Raiola

Defense: DE Kyle Vanden Bosch

Special teams: K Jason Hanson

The Lions also will have an extra captain that changes from week to week.

There will also be a weekly captain selected by #Lions coaches. This week it is Maurice Stovall.less than a minute ago via Twitter for BlackBerry® Favorite Retweet Reply

Interestingly enough, Stovall is going up against his former team this weekend. He helped the coaches prepare their game plan by sharing information about his time with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, so I bet that had a lot to do with his selection as this week's fifth captain.
