The Lions continue Organized Team Activities at their Allen Park facility. Safety Louis Delmas will not be taking part in OTAs as he continues to rehab from knee injuries and yesterday, Ryan Broyles, Shaun Hill and Mikel Leshoure sat out because of injuries. Receiver Nate Burleson, who broke his leg against the Bears last year, has been on the field with the first-team offense and coach Jim Scwartz says he's a had a great rehab.
And former Chicago linebacker Brian Urlacher has announced his retirement after spending his entire 13-year career with the Bears. He was an 8-time Pro Bowl selection and 4-time first-team All-Pro member. Urlacher's announcement comes months after he and Chicago parted ways this past offseason because the two could not reach an agreement on a new contract.
