On Monday, news broke that the Cleveland Browns experienced signed Kareem Hunt to a 1-year contract.
Hunt, of training course, was launched by the Kansas City Chiefs in late November after a video clip surfaced of him pushing and kicking a girl.
Given that Hunt is one particular of the most gifted working backs in football, it seemed like just a matter of time in advance of a group resolved to give him one more probability and the Browns are that group.
But what about the Detroit Lions?
A person man or woman who is not too pleased about the Lions not signing Hunt is 97.1 The Ticket’s Mike Valenti. Valenti bashed the Lions for not offering Hunt no matter what he preferred to appear to the Lions, saying he would have ponied up $5 million if that is what it took to get him to the Motor City. Valenti plainly could treatment much less about a person’s character if he can enable the group earn.
On Monday evening, at the Lions yearly season ticket holder Member Summit, typical manager Bob Quinn was requested by a female admirer about no matter whether he viewed as signing Kareem Hunt.
Quinn claimed they contemplate “everyone who is available” but the selection was manufactured that Hunt was not a in shape and mentioned they “want good men and women in this group.”
Quinn requested about Kareem Hunt (questioner is a girl, BTW, FWIW). Quinn claimed they contemplate “everyone who is accessible.” In this scenario they talked about him internally and they resolved he was not a in shape. “We want good men and women in this group.”

Winning is important, but for the Lions, it will not appear at any expense.
For that, we commend them.
Polar Vortex 2019!
What better time than to write up my initial full Detroit Lions 2019 NFL Mock Draft?
Allow me get started by saying these mock drafts are extremely fluid as free agency will enjoy a enormous position in what course Lions’ GM Bob Quinn decides to go in the NFL Draft.
For example, I personally feel that obtaining an edge rusher should really be the range one particular precedence this offseason and I would have to feel that Quinn agrees with that. But if he goes out and indicators a massive title DE these types of as Trey Flowers out of New England (indeed, be sure to!), the likelihood of the Lions drafting an edge rusher with their No. 8 select in the initial spherical would fall, even though it is nonetheless achievable.
This volume of my complete Detroit Lions mock draft focusses on what the recent needs are at this instant in time as if not a single free agent is signed.
So, with that understood, let’s get a appear at Vol. 1 of my complete Detroit Lions 2019 ‘Perfect’ NFL Mock Draft.
Round 1 (No. 8 over-all) Rashan Gary (DL) – Michigan
Inspite of not acquiring as a lot creation as many projected him to have at the college stage, Michigan defensive lineman Rashan Gary is the true offer and I have no doubt that he will be a top 10 select. Gary would in shape in fantastically with what Matt Patricia desires to do with the Lions’ defense and if he is accessible at No. 8, Bob Quinn should really not wait to pull the bring about.
From The Draft Community:
Rashan Gary is a adaptable defender with the wanted talents to be a disruptive power operating from 3T. Gary has the ability to established the edge vs. the operate and can be worked on the exterior sparingly, despite the fact that his go hurry skills are best used in eventualities that make it possible for him to enjoy with linear angles and with his hips aligned behind his pads to improve his electrical power and quickness.
