Bob Quinn had his chance to build a Super Bowl roster with the Detroit Lions but instead, he managed to make the roster worse than it was when he took over as GM.
Now, the Lions are charged with finding a new general manager and Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press recently linked a few candidates.
As we too had previously reported, Birkett mentioned former New York Giants GM Jerry Reese as a candidate but he also said the Lions will “kick the tires” on three more additional candidates with experience.
The Lions will kick the tires on some ex-general managers in the coming weeks before getting to a talented crop of potential first-time hires. Jerry Reese, who won two Super Bowls with the New York Giants, will be a candidate, as CBS Sports reported over the weekend (though an interview is not yet set). Ex-Houston Texans GM Rick Smith and the ex-Cleveland Brown duo of John Dorsey and Ray Farmer could be candidates as well.
Nation, do you have any interest in the candidates mentioned by Birkett?
