I am a recent graduate of Michigan State University where I studied Sports Journalism. Naturally I grew up an MSU and Detroit sports fan. Football and hockey are my two favorite sports, but I also enjoy college basketball. My dream is to do play-by-play for football. Originally from the small town of Morrice, MI and now residing in Grand Rapids.

Despite suffering a sprained ankle in the pre-season last year, 3rd year DT Caraun Reid had the best season of his young career in 2015. The 2014 5th round pick out of Princeton started 12 games and had 2 sacks for the Detroit Lions defense.

Reid decided to undergo surgery in January to repair his ankle and is just getting back on the field after missing mini camp and OTAs.

“I just wish I had more time,” said Reid. “That time is, like, invaluable. You make big strides there, just mentally — and physically, a little bit. But I caught up. I was here for the rookie stuff (at the start of training camp), so I caught up.”-Detroit Free Press

So far at training camp, Reid has seen a significant portion of the reps behind starters Haloti Ngata and Tyrunn Walker. Defensive tackle is a position that Lions fans will have to keep an eye on as rookie 2nd round pick A’Shawn Robinson, Khyri Thornton, and free agent pickup Stefan Charles are also competing for playing time up front.

As far as his surgically repaired ankle, Reid told reporters at Detroit’s training camp on Tuesday that he “feels awesome”.

“No complaints,” Reid said. “It feels good not to be sitting on the sideline watching everyone.”-Detroit Free Press

The former FCS All-American spent last off-season training with former Lions DT Ndamukong Suh and has spent the majority of this off-season training with Ngata. The veteran defensive tackle has helped Reid with his awareness on the field.

“Just noticing more things,” Reid said. “Just continue to learn from Haloti. He’s been out here for a while now, so he’s a great vet to learn from and to learn how he plays the game the right way.”-Detroit Free Press

With the defensive tackle position as deep as it is, it will be interesting to see how Reid figures into the defensive line rotation as the pre-season nears.
