Detroit Lions newest S DeShon Elliott reveals jersey number

As you have probably heard by now, the Detroit Lions have signed free agent S DeShon Elliott to a 1-year contract.

In case you are wondering which number Elliott will wear with the Lions, he has you covered.

On Thursday, Elliott responded to a tweet, revealing that he will be wearing No. 7 with the Lions in 2022.

The most-famous former Lions player to wear No. 7 was RB/K Dutch Clark, who played with the team from 1934 to 1938.


It looks as though the visit went well.

According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the Detroit Lions have signed safety DeShon Elliott to a one-year contract:

According to CBS Sports correspondent Josina Anderson, the deal is worth $3.65 million:

The former Texas Longhorn was named a unanimous All-American and first-team All-Big 12 safety during his final collegiate season. He has played the last four years with the Baltimore Ravens, amassing 109 tackles, 3.5 sacks, one interception and two forced fumbles.

Cleveland Cavaliers at Brooklyn Nets

Cavaliers (+8.5) – 4 Stars
Under 228.5 – 2 Stars

Our model loves the Cleveland Cavaliers traveling to Brooklyn.

With stars Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant, the Nets are a public favorite to advance in this spot as a preseason title favorite. The Nets’ bumpy road has been well-documented, but they have been playing better recently. Brooklyn has the fifth-best net rating (+6.3) in the NBA since March 1st.

Even with that, the Nets aren’t blowing teams out of the water. Five of their last eight games have been decided by 11 points or fewer. Therefore, this is a massive spread in a winner-take-all game where both teams will be at maximum effort.

Our model believes the Cavs cover the 8.5-point spread a whopping 68.7% of the time. Overall, I concur with that. Cleveland is just 21st in net rating (-3.4) since March 1st, but a chunk of it was without star rookie Evan Mobley, who is back in a full-time role.

As for the total, these two teams averaged 220.7 total points across three regular-season contests, and both have actually averaged a sub-100.0 pace (i.e. estimated possessions) since March 1st. As those possessions become more valuable in this game, those possessions should get even longer.
