Here’s everything you need to know before the start of Detroit Lions training camp.

We finally made it through the offseason. We survived through a general manager search and a complete deconstruction of the Detroit Lions’ front office. We persevered through the abrupt ending of a treasured career. We held our heads high through an onslaught of Pro Football Focus articles telling us how bad the Lions are. We reserved judgment after witnessing a draft that had no "sexy" picks, even though the Lions were thin at running back and wide receiver at the time.

We saw some of our favorite players sign elsewhere and even some that remain unsigned. We met new faces that we’re still getting to know and hopefully will eventually love. We’ve watched impatiently as our players begin to work their way back to health and get back into football shape.

And it’s all about to pay off, because training camp is finally here: Where Hope not only lives, but feeds off of everything in sight. Every little tidbit of news is devoured and digested into Hope’s belly, promising this team will be better and will be better right now. Hope can be a dangerous thing, especially in a few month. But today is a celebration, so Long Live Hope.

Here’s every possible thing you could need to know about the Detroit Lions’ 2016 Training camp.
