Back in October, Detroit Lions fans and players were shocked to hear that GM Bob Quinn had traded team captain and starting safety Quandre Diggs to the Seattle Seahawks for a fifth-round draft pick.
Since the trade took place, Quinn has not been available for questioning.
On Monday, during his season-ending press conference, Quinn was asked by a reporter (who probably could not contain himself) about what his thought process was when he made the deal.
“I thought it was the best thing for the football team at the time,” Quinn said. “Going back, it was something we felt good with Will Harris stepping in there and playing. Unfortunately, the week after that Tracy (Walker) got hurt. So it was kind of a tough week or two when you make that trade, and then a guy that you’re really counting on to take that leadership role gets hurt and he misses a couple of weeks.”
Quinn was also asked if he regretted trading Diggs, who has played at a Pro Bowl level with the Seahawks.
His response was short and sweet.
