Ep: 274 – Lions Training Camp Begins – The Detroit Lions Podcast

In this episode of The Detroit Lions Podcast, Chris is joined again by Jeff Risdon to fill you in on the start of training camp. This year is different than years past for obvious reasons, so the guys figured it would be best to help everyone understand the new process. We also discuss the NFL Top 100 list, Covid Cats™, Opt Outs, Free Agency, and take you on a quick dash around the division.

Detroit Lions Podcast Ready For Football

We walk you through The Covid Cats™ list – which is our term for the Detroit Lions Covid Reserve List. We’ll help you understand who is on it, why, what to expect while they’re on it, and what it takes to get off the list. We also discuss how this provides players and clubs some needed flexibility considering the surrounding circumstances. We also talk about who has opted out of the season so far and what that means for both the player and the team.

After that we dive into the precautions that are being taken by the Lions under the NFL regulations and the ones they self-prescribed that are above and beyond.  The Lions are one of the first 4 teams to have their plan approved by the NFL, and it shows as to why. It’s a well thought out plan that considers a number of factors.

From there we get into the NFL Top 100 vote and why the Lions not having anyone listed in the top 100 is a galaxy brain move. The salary cap and spending has become a question for a few people and we go into Bob Quinn‘s explanation as to why we aren’t spending like some people believe we should be.  Lastly, Riz takes us on a quick jaunt, “Around the Division!”

After spending a few years in the Detroit Lions Reddit community he decided to start the Detroit Lions Podcast. Its become the #1 Detroit Lions podcast, and regularly ranks with the top podcasts in Detroit. With a mixture of pre-recorded shows, live & recorded phone-ins, and live post-game broadcasts - this is his slice of Honolulu Blue heaven.
