Entering rookie mini-camp, the Detroit Lions had four open spots remaining on their 90-man roster. Per NFL rules, they were allowed to bring in five unsigned players on a try-out basis during camp. Now that camp has concluded, two of those try-out players have reportedly taken advantage of their opportunity and earned a contract: Safety Alijah Holder and tight end Charlie Taumoepeau.
Onwuzurike and McNeill spoke with reporters following Detroit’s third and final day of rookie minicamp. Oh yeah. I already love the dude (McNeill) as a person, real good guy,” Onwuzurike said.
All indications are that the NFL will get back to business as usual this fall and that means an opportunity for the Detroit Lions to host fans and/or traveling teams during training camp. While the Lions hosting fans is a real possibility, they won’t be traveling or partaking in any joint practices in 2021. We will stay here,” Lions coach Dan Campbell said at his press conference ahead of rookie mini-camp.
