Lions web site: Ryan Broyles on roster bubble
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Though a story previewing receivers on the Lions official team website says that the Lions will give Ryan Broyles every opportunity to make the team this summer, they still list him as being on the roster bubble. That's because Broyles has battled injuries throughout his short NFL career after being taken in the second round of the 2012 NFL Draft. He's played 16 games over two seasons and has 30 catches for 395 yards and two scores. 

"Broyles still has to prove the explosiveness is back in his legs," writer Tim Twentyman explains. "If he does that, he should have a spot."

Ryan Broyles making good progress
by Larry Hartstein |

Lions receiver Ryan Broyles made "impressive catches" and "flashed his speed and agility" during minicamp as he continues to progress in his return from a torn Achilles, reports the Detroit Free Press. Broyles told the paper he feels like he's finally getting the benefit of a full offseason.

He was planning to work with a speed coach before training camp.

"It’s more just conditioning for the body, a lot of lightweight stuff for me to stay mobile, to stay healthy," he said. "Foot placement and things like that."

Lions looking for No. 3 receiver
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Lions have Ryan Broyles, Jeremy Ross and Kris Durham competing for the No. 3 job this season behind Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate, reports the Detroit Free Press.

Broyles is returning from a torn Achilles tendon, his third straight season-ending leg injury, but he’s ahead of schedule in his rehab and took part in most spring workouts. He’s the same surehanded receiver the Lions drafted in the second round two years ago, though not as explosive. 

Ross is another slot receiver. He’s all but guaranteed a spot on the game-day roster because of his return ability, and is coming off of an impressive spring during which he saw extended action because of injuries.

Durham is the biggest and most accomplished option of this trio. He’s a red-zone threat at 6-feet-5, is coming off a career-high 38-catch season and has a good rapport with Matthew Stafford, his college roommate.

by Larry Hartstein |

"I'm gettin' right, man. I really am," Broyles told the website. "(Rehab) is not fun. It's not anything I wanted to have happen. But I just got to be smart, at the end of the day.

"I'm always a positive person. Everything happens for a reason, and this will be a good testimony for me years on. Just got to continue to work, and whatever comes my way, I'll continue to attack it.

"But it sure is good to get back out here and play football again."
