What's next for the Lions this offseason?

With draft season complete, what's up next for the Detroit Lions this offseason? Let's take a look at their upcoming schedule.

The NFL offseason already feels like it is starting to wind down. Okay, maybe that's a slight exaggeration considering it's only May, but with free agency basically complete and the 2015 NFL Draft in the rear-view mirror, there's really only one major phase of the offseason to go until all sights are set on training camp, which marks the unofficial start of the next season.

To be exact, I'm referring to organized team activities and minicamps. The Detroit Lions are set to begin their OTAs later this month, and they will have three sets of them in total. After that, they will hold a mandatory minicamp in mid-June as they wrap up their offseason training program. Here's the full schedule:

OTAs

May 26-28
June 2-4
June 8-11

Mandatory minicamp

June 16-18

Once the Lions complete their minicamp, they will basically have a month-long vacation before returning for training camp at the end of July. Then, at that point, the offseason will essentially be over with training camp beginning and preparations ramping up for the 2015 season.
