REPORT: Detroit Lions meet with QB, other players during Shrine Game week

First of all, if you are not already following Jeff Risdon from Lions Wire on Twitter, you are missing out big time.

Risdon is currently covering the action from the Shrine Game in St. Petersburg, Florida and he has been doing a hell of a job tweeting out his observations.

On Wednesday, Risdon confirmed the Detroit Lions have met with a couple of players (on the field) for the first time this week. Those players were Malik Carney, a linebacker out of North Carolina and Joshua Miles, an offensive guard out of Morgon State.

Risdon also confirmed (via his conversations with players) that the Lions have met with quarterback Taylor Cornelius out of Oklahoma State. In 2018, Cornelius threw for 3,973 yards and 32 touchdowns (13 interceptions) in 13 games for the Cowboys.

In addition to Taylor, the Lions have also met with the following players.

From Lions Wire:

Cortez Broughton, DT, Cincinnati
Jamal Custis, WR, Syracuse
Daniel Helm, TE, Duke
Jesper Horsted, WR, Princeton
Michael Jackson, CB, Miami FL
Jimmy Moreland, CB, James Madison
Tyree St. Louis, OT, Miami FL


Detroit Lions’ Fans: Chill out, the best OC candidate is still available

When news broke that Jim Bob Cooter would not be returning to the Detroit Lions in 2019, head coach Matt Patricia was immediately charged with what will be the most important move the team will need to make this offseason. Hiring a new offensive coordinator.

Within hours (maybe even sooner) of the news Cooter was not coming back, the speculation began as to who would be the best choice to replace him. There were reports Adam Gase was going to be fired by the Miami Dolphins (which he eventually was) and that he would be a top target for the Lions. Well, that may or may not have been the case, but Gase decided to take the head coaching job with the New York Jets.

Other possible candidates included Kliff Kingsbury (HC Arizona), Freddie Kitchens (HC Cleveland), Todd Monken (OC Cleveland), Nathanial Hackett (OC Green Bay), and Steve Sarkisian (OC Alabama).

As the announcements came that those coaches had taken other jobs, coupled with the Lions being silent about the matter, something predictable happened.
