The Detroit Lions held a three-day minicamp this week as part of the offseason training program. All three practices were open to the media in their entirety.
“It’s a great week to have extra time so that we can go in from a film standpoint and really study all three downs, how they fit together, go back into the red area, review some of the things that we’ve done there and just spend that extra time in the classroom,” head coach Matt Patricia said Tuesday.
“We also pick up an extra thirty minutes on the field – which is great for us. We can work in two different phases of the game, mixing in a little more special teams and work on the transition of the game. Great week for us from that aspect of it.”
Following practice, the coaches have to leave the field, but players are able to stick around if they want to get extra work in. Defensive lineman Da’Shawn Hand has been using that time to work with some of the rookies at his position.
“Hey, whoever needs help, I’m here,” Hand said after Wednesday’s practice. “Everybody just wants to work hard. It’s a great thing when you can combine and try to reach a goal together.”
