Training camp is nearly upon us! After a month of grueling inactivity, the Detroit Lions kick off the summer rite of football passage this week.
There will be many things to watch as the Lions prepare for the 2014 NFL season. While there aren't many starting-position battles, uncertainty looms large in several spots.
Coach Jim Caldwell and his staff will use the coming camp and preseason games to try and sort out all those issues.
Here are five things the Lions are hoping to accomplish in training camp.
