The Detroit Lions of June 2012 had lots of news and buzz to discuss about them.
Between coming off a 10-6 season, and near-monthly player arrests, the Lions news cycle was busier than it should have been last year—and mostly in bad ways.
In 2013, the Lions have been much quieter on the national stage. Their 4-12 record last season ensures that they're not generally in the national discussion for a Super Bowl, and a lack of legal trouble has kept them out of the bad kind of offseason headlines.
Still, there is plenty to discuss regarding this team, and their offseason trajectory of staying quiet after a lackluster year is similar to what happened before their 2011 campaign.
Put in a more direct way, no news for this team is good news. But this is the NFL, the league with the 12-month news cycle. There is never truly no news, even during the slowest time of the year (which this is, now that minicamp and OTAs are over).
So with that said, let's see what Lions buzz is out there to sustain us between now and training camp.
