The Lion’s first training camp practice is set for this afternoon in Allen Park. Veteran players joined the rookies yesterday for physicals and conditioning tests. Detroit’s pre-season opener is two weeks from tonight at Ford Field against the New York Jets.
Yesterday, the Jets said they had signed ex-Michigan All-American receiver Braylon Edwards for a third time. Edwards spent the 2009 and '10 seasons with the Jets and played the final 3 games last year with the club. He was a free agent this offseason and found no takers before landing again with the Jets. The 30-year-old Edwards has 40 career touchdowns with the Jets, Cleveland, San Francisco and Seattle.
