Dan Campbell reveals training camp opponent for joint practices

During last year’s training camp, the Detroit Lions traveled to Indiana, where they held some joint training camp practices with the Indianapolis Colts. By all accounts, it was a great experience for both teams, as it allows the players to get fired up to line up across from somebody who is not on their own team. Well, according to head coach Dan Campbell, the Lions will be participating in joint practices again during this year’s training camp. According to Lions’ reporter Dannie Rogers, Campbell just revealed that this year’s joint-practice opponent will be the New York Giants.

Key Points

  1. The Detroit Lions will be participating in joint training camp practices again in 2022.
  2. Head coach Dan Campbell believes that joint practices provide a valuable opportunity for his players to face strong competition and gain experience.
  3. This year’s joint-practice opponent for the Lions will be the New York Giants, offering a chance for both teams to prepare for the upcoming season against a new opponent.

Why it Matters for Dan Campbell and Detroit Lions

Prior to last year’s joint practices with the Colts, Campbell said that “it feels like you are getting two games in a week, two games in two days. You won’t have all those reps, but yet we’re going to get over 30 reps with our starters against very good competition.” After last year’s joint practices with the Colts, Campbell said that he came away from those practices feeling better about his team. Holding joint practices allows for the players on both teams to experience head-to-head matchups that they would not have seen had they only practiced against their own teammates.

Bottom Line: Detroit Lions to tune-up against playoff opponent

Lions will be participating in joint practices once again during this year’s training camp, with the New York Giants as their opponent. Based on last year’s positive experience with the Indianapolis Colts, head coach Dan Campbell believes that joint practices provide invaluable opportunities for his team to face off against high-quality competition and gain valuable experience. With the Lions looking to improve on their performance from last season, these joint practices could prove crucial in helping them prepare for the challenges ahead.
