Here is what Thomas Odukoya out of Eastern Michigan told Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press about his opportunity to work out for Lions head coach, Dan Campbell.

“I forgot what he said in that first press conference about kneecaps, but I definitely see myself as a kneecap guy, too, how I play the game and how I approach the game,” Odukoya said. “So I’m excited for Monday. It’s another great opportunity to show my skill set.”

Aiden Hutchinson recently did an interview with “The Wheelhouse” on ESPN’s Houston radio affiliate, 97.5 and was asked about the Detroit Lions, and this was his candid response:

“You know, growing up, it was hard being a Lions fan,” Hutchinson told The Wheelhouse. “The Lions have been struggling for a while. I actually grew up a Patriots fan with Tom Brady and stuff like that. So, I never really loved the Lions too much. But, hey, if they pick me, they’re getting it all.”

His candid response is as real as they get, and it is refreshing to hear a young player speak the truth, as well as show that his loyalty is to the game, and if it means elevating a struggling franchise like the Detroit Lions, well then that is what he is going to do!
