Mikel Leshoure put up a series of videos for DetroitLions.com. Good stuff.

Not under the "good stuff" category is AJ Hawk's wrist, which appears to be well enough to allow him to play in a celebrity golf invitational. Last year he finished fourth, behind the guy who played Carlton in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Alfonso Ribeiro. Also scheduled to compete are Mason Crosby and Aaron Rodgers.

Hawk kept opening his mouth, as he explained why the Packers haven't had to have unsupervised offseason workouts. He also defended indefensible former Ohio State head coach Jim Tressel. I am finding myself disliking Hawk more and more.

In all the "Adrian Peterson fumbled this one" jokes, he apparently skipped out on the Adrian Peterson football camp saying he had a taping for NFL Network, but his taping isn't scheduled until the 3rd of July. The camp organizer also came out and blamed themselves for misunderstanding Adrian's schedule. Whoops...

And the Vikings quarterback thing won't go away. Christian Ponder will wrap up his training at IMG next week, and plans on attending a couple camps and reunions. Then he'll plan on sitting down behind whatever veteran quarterback the Vikings sign, or competing for the starting spot.
