Although the schedule for the rest of the offseason is pretty filled for the Detroit Lions, it does not yet include specific dates for training camp. We know the Lions will begin training camp in late July, but as far as specifics go, nothing is out yet. The dates won't be announced until later in the offseason, meaning for now nothing is set in stone.
While nothing official is out right now, Anwar Richardson did share the expected start date on Thursday.
Although unofficial, #Lions players will likely report for training camp on July 26. Hit the field on July 27 #NFL— Anwar Richardson (@AnwarRichardson) May 24, 2012
Following the Lions' minicamp from June 12-14, players will get some time off before training camp begins. July 26, the report date, is when the players would need to be back in Allen Park for camp. If the first day the players hit the field does end up being July 27, it would be exactly two weeks before the Lions' first preseason game (vs. the Browns on Aug. 10).
