2016-2017 Detroit Lions News
The retirement of Calvin Johnson leaves many fans wondering where the Detroit Lions will find their offensive production. The answer will likely be found in a variety of places, as the roster has plenty of talent that had been previously overshadowed by the incomparable Megatron. Golden Tate has the ability to be a number one receiver and Ameer Abdullah has all the makings of a solid every-down back. The offense will face a tough test when the Cincinnati Bengals come to Ford Field on August 18 for the Lions’ first preseason home game. This will be a chance for both teams to face off against potential playoff contenders, and fans can get tickets starting as low as $5.
NFL training camp is in full swing, and the Detroit Lions have their work cut out for them in order to be prepared for their Aug. 12 opener in Pittsburgh.
