We've still got another month and a half or so to go until the start of training camp, but the NFL offseason is almost over. The Detroit Lions' offseason training program, for example, is set to come to an end this week with a three-day mandatory minicamp:
June 10-12 (mandatory)
The Lions finished their organized team activities last week, meaning the only thing left on their offseason schedule is the mandatory minicamp. After that comes to a close, the team will break for a brief summer vacation. They will then return to town for training camp in late July, at which point all eyes will be on the 2014 season.
Going into this mandatory minicamp, the main goal for the Lions is simply to stay healthy. Every practice helps the players get more comfortable with the new schemes and new coaches, but health is the No. 1 priority at this point in the offseason. The Lions have been pretty fortunate so far from a health standpoint, and the last thing they need is a serious injury going into their break before training camp.
