The Lions offseason program ended on Wednesday. On Thursday, the Lions shared a video of Matt Patricia visiting the team's headquarters in Allen Park.

"Feels good to be back," he said in the video. Patricia entered the facility through the back door, where his temperature was taken and he went through apparent health screenings. He wore a mask throughout the taping, that took him through the facility and locker room area.

"We've got a really amazing group. Our guys did an unbelievable job all the way through the spring with the virtual meetings. Guys were into it. They were attentive. We were able to move through different phases of the offseason," he said.

Patricia said he found the virtual offseason "very powerful, very impactful." He added he enjoyed seeing and learning more about players' lives in a different environment.

"I can't wait to get these guys in here to get in a meeting, to hug 'em up, and just get rolling," Patricia said.

The Lions are like every NFL team, unsure of how or when training camp will begin.

"I think everybody here in the building has done an amazing job getting us ready to go and getting us back. And really, I just appreciate everybody's efforts," Patricia said.
