Kevin Ogletree favored to be Lions' No. 3 receiver
by Larry Hartstein |

Lions receiver Kevin Ogletree has opened training camp by running with Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate on the first team, reports MLive.com. Ogletree took the lead for the No. 3 job with stellar play during OTAs and "several nice catches during minicamp," the report said.

"This is the biggest opportunity of my career," Ogletree said, "and it would be selfish of me not to indulge in it and bury myself in the playbook. Just overcommit myself to getting better every day.

"I've always felt confident about my game. But like I said, this is the biggest opportunity of my career. And there was no way I was going to mess this thing up."

Ogletree caught 13 passes for 199 yards and a touchdown after signing with Detroit for the final 12 games last year. He went through a grueling training program to get ready for 2014, the website said. While he lacks Johnson's size or Tate's speed, Ogletree "runs nice, consistent patterns and has had a knack for getting separation from defensive backs."

Ogletree also has had few, if any drops in camp, the website said.

Four receivers for one spot in Detroit?
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Lions official team website believes four receivers will compete for one roster spot in camp this summer. Kevin Ogletree, Kris Durham, rookie T.J. Jones and second-year wideout Corey Fuller are considered "leading candidates" for the job. Ogletree and Durham lead the way in terms of experience but Fuller and Jones are younger and might have more explosiveness to contribute.

Kevin Ogletree working to become deep threat for Lions
by Michael Hurcomb | CBS Sports Staff

With Lions receiver Pat Edwards being demoted to the practice squad, Kevin Ogletree could become the team's top vertical threat opposite Calvin Johnson, according to MLive.com.

"For sure," coach Jim Schwartz said. "We wouldn't bring a guy in unless we thought he had good enough skills that he could do those kind of things."

Ogletree said he's fine with running deep routes since it fits his skill set.

"That's what I been comfortable doing throughout my years of playing football," Ogletree said. "That goes back to baseball, playing center field, just tracking the ball, being able to run, seeing it off the bat, or in this case, out of the quarterback's arm."

Kevin Ogletree has 20 yards in Lions debut
by Nando Di Fino |

Lions receiver Kevin Ogletree, who joined the team earlier this week and was making his Detroit debut on Sunday, caught two passes for 20 yards in the team's 22-9 loss to the Packers. Ogletree was targeted three times. 

Lions star wideout Calvin Johnson was declared inactive with a knee injury prior to the game, likely forcing Ogletree into more action than he would have otherwise seen. Through five games this season (four with Tampa Bay), Ogletree has 90 yards and a receiving touchdown. 

The Lions face the Browns in Week 6.

Kevin Ogletree wants to play days after signing
by Michael Hurcomb | CBS Sports Staff

Newly signed Lions receiver Kevin Ogletree is hoping a cram session of Detroit's playbook will get him in the lineup Week 5 at Green Bay.

"I hope (to play)," Ogletree said Thursday, per MLive.com. "I'm in my playbook at night time, until I close my eyes, so all the work is being put in for that. I just want to help us. I want to play Sunday for sure. It's a Sunday in October, so I expect to play. We'll see what happens when that time comes around."

Ogletree has experience playing in the slot and on the outside.

"I think he'll give us some depth there that will help us," offensive coordinator Scott Linehan said. "We looked at quite a bit of his target tapes from the last couple years, and (he) showed some promise. It's early, we don't know a whole lot about him yet. We'll see. He'll probably be asked to do something for us because of our receiver depth, but we'll decide when that'll be. This week, next week, we'll see. We're just really thin at receiver right now."
