BREAKING: Detroit Lions TE misses team meetings, benched for final game

It may be a meaningless final game of the regular season for the Detroit Lions but that does not mean it’s ok to just skip out on team meetings.

According to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press, that’s exactly what tight end Michael Roberts did on Saturday. Now, he has been both fined and listed as inactive for last game of the 2017 season.

With Roberts out, Hakeem Valles will serve as the Lions No. 3 tight end on Sunday against the Packers.

The next Detroit Lions head coach will be…

Though nobody in the Detroit Lions organization is willing to speak a word about it, head coach Jim Caldwell will likely be fired soon after the final game of the regular season, which will take place on Sunday afternoon.

There is no question about it that Caldwell is a great man and is loved by his players but unfortunately, his football coaching skills are not good enough and it’s time for the Lions to go in a different direction before it’s too late.

So, with Caldwell likely being fired, Lions general manager Bob Quinn will have to determine who the next Detroit Lions head coach will be.

Candidates Galore!

When looking around the league, there certainly does not seem to be a shortage of head-coaching candidates for the 2018 season. Heck, the Lions even have a couple of HC candidates currently in their own organization. That being said, there will likely be quite a few head coaching openings around the league, so Quinn will have to be on top of his game before the top guys end up elsewhere.

So, who will Quinn target as he searches for the perfect coach for the Lions roster?
