Lions try to move on from offseason negatives.

The first order of business for the Lions was to disinfect the stench left by seven offseason arrests.

“When I had an opportunity to talk to everybody (on Friday),” captain and defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch said, “I said, ‘Whatever happened this summer, we can’t fix it now. In my past experience, the only way to move past things is just to get back to work and focus on football.’

“The great thing about training camp, you don’t have time to look back or look ahead. You just take each day as it comes. The worst thing would be to dwell on it and let it affect us going forward.”

Center and captain Dominic Raiola put it like this:

“As much as we didn’t want it to happen, it kind of alarmed everybody and put everybody on watch. I think it’s brought the team closer together. There is going to be a lot of people saying stuff about us. People say we are immature and undisciplined. But we know what kind of work ethic we have. We know what we have to do to improve.
