Lions DT Ziggy Ansah to participate in first offseason
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

In only his seventh year of playing organized football, Lions defensive tackle Ziggy Ansah will experience his first healthy NFL offseason, a fact that will help prepare him for what could be a big season, per the team's website. 

Ansah was drafted by the Lions in 2013 and didn't get to spend much time working on his game leading up to draft day. Prior to the 2014 season, Ansah was sidelined with shoulder surgery and missed all team OTAs and minicamps. 

Now, however, Ansah is healthy and getting in shape for the 2015 campaign, which could see him in a bigger role on the Lions' front line. 

"We're looking forward to Ziggy really having his first offseason and getting into shape and having a great year and having the stamina to finish well," defensive coordinator Teryl Austin said.
