For those of you familiar with Ayers time in Detroit, we hope you got a little laugh out of this.
For those of you who have no idea what this is all about, here is a refresher.
In August of 2018, news broke that the Lions had signed veteran defensive end Robert Ayers. On that Monday, Ayers participated in his first practice with his Lions’ teammates.
A day later, Ayers was released with no explanation.
So, there ya go!
Best of luck to Robert Ayers and his next endeavor, even if it does only last one day!
