From KFFL Lions | Team will have open competition on offensive line Sat, 6 May 2006 12:38:04 -0700 Detroit Lions head coach Rod Marinelli said the team will have open-competition on the offensive line in training camp. Marinelli added, "In that way you have just got to get down and if a guy has some position flexibility, if he's backing up here and he might be the best guy here, if he fits that spot, if his range and his talent and those things fit that spot we can do that. We're just trying to find five starters right now and then some guys who can have some position flexibility and backup and some of those things." Lions | Marinelli discusses Calhoun Sat, 6 May 2006 12:37:44 -0700 Detroit Lions head coach Rod Marinelli said the team looked at RB Brian Calhoun's athletic background when they drafted him. Marinelli added, "All I know is the biggest thing: if you watch him on tape, he's exceptional in the open field; vision, feet and endurance. He's showing it out here right now. It's been good. He's exciting." When asked about anything that defines Calhoun, Marinelli replied, "I just think he's got a chance to be an all-around back; a blocker, a catcher, he's smart so we can use him in different ways, durable. He's a great kid."
