12 Detroit Lions Who Remain From Matt Patricia Era

Whenever there's a shift in leadership in the NFL, rosters inevitably witness change. Well, Brad Holmes took the mantle of general manager for the Detroit Lions on January 14, 2021, and the roster transformation has been swift (No pun intended). Teaming up with head coach Dan Campbell, the duo was intent on crafting a team that resonated with Detroit's identity and spirit, something former Lions head coach Matt Patricia and GM Bob Quinn seemed to ignore. As we head toward the third season under Holmes and Campbell, there are only 12 players remaining from the Matt Patricia era. (H/T to Lions Wire for pointing this out)

Bottom Line – From Roaring Past to Prowling Future

Change is the only constant, especially in the dynamic world of sports. Yet, it's the blend of the old and new that often crafts the most compelling narratives. The Detroit Lions, with their mix of legacy players and fresh talent, are set to script a saga of growth, challenges, and hopefully, many victories. As they embrace the future, the echoes of their past roar will only make their prowling in the forthcoming seasons even more formidable. With that being said, let's just be thankful that the days of Matt Patricia and Bob Quinn are behind us!
