Ziggy Ansah and Darius Slay Signing Autographs At Lions Camp | Photos

Ziggy Ansah signing autographs at Lions training campLast season, the Detroit Lions finished with a 9-7 record, the exact mark the club posted the year prior. In 2016, Detroit qualified for the postseason, where as in ’17, the team was not quite good enough to play any additional games. Since professional sports is such an unforgiving business, the major move the franchise made during the offseason was the firing of head coach Jim Caldwell and the subsequent hiring of former Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia to replace him.

Recently, Lance Martinez of My Detroit Sports was at Lions training camp, at the team’s Allen Park, Michigan facility, located nine miles west of Ford Field.

In the upper right and below is some of what he gathered.
