Sam Martin is the Detroit Lions' starting punter, and for much of last season, he served as their kickoff specialist as well. This year, could he get work as the Lions' long-distance specialist on field goals? It sounds like it's a possibility, and he's definitely got the leg for it.

- The Free Press caught up with Jared DeVries when he visited Lions training camp earlier this week.
