According to a report from Adam Schefter, veteran free-agent DE Jabaal Sheard is visiting the Detroit Lions on Thursday, setting up a ‘potential reunion’ with Matt Patricia and.
Sheard, who is 31, won a Super Bowl with Patricia and Quinn while they were all in New England together.
In 2019, Sheard played in 13 games (12 starts) with the Indianapolis Colts, where he posted 4.5 sacks and 25 tackles.
The Lions clearly need some help rushing the passer, and though Sheard is past his prime, he still may be able to lend a hand.
Veteran free-agent DE Jabaal Sheard, who has been waiting for the right opportunity and deal, is visiting with the Lions for a potential reunion in Detroit with HC Matt Patricia and GM Bob Quinn, per source. They all won a Super Bowl together in New England.
