Week in Review: Lions wrap up organized team activities in Allen Park

Posted Jun 8, 2013

The Detroit Lions will hold their three-day mandatory mini-camp before the offseason conditioning program breaks June 13

This week marked the final organized team activities (OTA) of the offseason prior to next week's three-day mandatory mini-camp.

Detroit Lions Vice Chairman Bill Ford paid a visit to the practice field on Tuesday when the session was opened to the general media.

Ford expressed his optimism toward the 2013 season.

"I think we've got a quarterback and there are teams in the league who can't say that," Ford told reporters.

"Obviously, we have a lot of talent around this quarterback as well, so, those are reasons (to be optimistic about 2013)."

Ford also talked about Martin Mayhew, Jim Schwartz and the addition of Reggie Bush.

Keeping with the topic of Matthew Stafford and Bush, the veteran running back says that Stafford reminds him of his first few seasons with Drew Brees in New Orleans.
