On Sunday, the Detroit Lions will host the Seattle Seahawks at Ford Field. With a win, the Lions would move to 4-3 on the season as they continue to try and claw their way to a playoff berth.
The Lions continued their preparations for the Seahawks on Thursday but they were without running back Theo Riddick who missed his second-straight practice with a knee injury. Joining Riddick on the report are Ezekiel Ansah (shoulder) and Jarrad Davis (calf), who were both limited.
Grading the Detroit Lions’ trade for DL Damon ‘Snacks’ Harrison
There is nothing better than waking up to a blockbuster trade that involves your favorite team.
That’s exactly what happened on Wednesday morning when I woke up to a tweet from Ian Rappoport reporting that the Detroit Lions the New York Giants for DL Damon Harrison.
So, how should Lions GM Bob Quinn be graded on this trade?
Let me begin by saying that I have never been more confident in handing out a grade than I am now. (Well, giving the Teez Tabor draft pick an F was pretty solid too)
By acquiring Harrison, Quinn was able to solidify the Lions’ biggest weakness, stopping the run. Harrison, who many refer to as “Snacks,” has led the NFL in run stops in each of the past three seasons and through Week 7 of this season, he is No. 2 in the league in that category.
But what makes this trade even better is that Harrison, who is 29-years-old, is currently signed through the 2020 season, which means this move not only helps the Lions now but also in the future.
