Notes: Sam LaPorta among Lions getting pre-camp work with Jared Goff

We have now reached the part of the summer where training camp is just around the corner. Players are typically taking time off, enjoying the last few moments of relaxation before the grind of camp begins.

Or if your Detroit Lions’ quarterback Jared Goff, you’re organizing a workout with the likes of wide receivers Amon-Ra St. Brown, and Jameson Williams—as well as rookie tight end Sam LaPorta.

From the look of the backdrop on some of the photos from Sergio Vazquez’s Instagram (shotsbygoonie), it looks like the practice took place in California—likely close to where Goff and St. Brown live in the offseason.

This kind of thing has to get you excited as a Lions fan. Williams is still just 22 years old and won’t be 23 until March of next year, LaPorta is 22, and the Sun God is only 23, despite now entering his third year in the NFL. Thinking of this offense growing and maturing together is fueling my Honolulu Blue dreams right about now.
