The Detroit Lions will kick off this year's training camp on Monday, Aug. 3 at the team's practice facility in Allen Park, Mich. Training camp will run through Tuesday, Aug. 18.

The Lions are looking to build off an 11–5 campaign last year that saw them lose to the Cowboys in the NFC wild card game. 

The off-season saw the departures of Ndamukong Suh, Nick Fairley and C.J. Mosley, and Detroit acquired defensive tackle Haloti Ngata in a trade with the Baltimore Ravens.

The Lions' draft picks included guard Laken Tomlinson, running back Ameer Abdullah, cornerback Alex Carter and defensive tackle Gabe Wright.
