The Detroit Lions selected former Michigan quarterback Jake Rudock in the sixth round of the 2016 NFL Draft. During his time with the Lions, he played in just three games while serving as a backup to Matthew Stafford, completed 3 of 5 passes for 24 yards and an interception.
Following the 2018 season, the Lions attempted to re-sign Rudock but he declined to test the waters.
Well, according to reports, Rudock has found a new home with the Miami Dolphins.
Congrats Jake Rudock signing with the @MiamiDolphins

We wish Jake the best of luck in South Beach!
GM Bob Quinn: Team is tougher since I took over
Detroit Lions general manager Bob Quinn recently spoke to media members and stated his belief that the team is tougher to play against since he took the reigns in January of 2016.
During his first two years as GM, the Lions finished 9-7 both times with average offensive and defensive numbers. Though the defense remained average during head coach Matt Patricia’s first year, the offense took a dip in efficiency, ranking 25th overall in scoring.
But Quinn is choosing to look more at the intangibles rather than the hard numbers.
“I think we’re a more physical team,” Quinn said. “I think we have a much better and sound, fundamentally, defense, especially run defense. I think we play a physical brand of football, which before, I didn’t think that was the case my first year or two. I think this year, we drastically improved that. …I think the same thing can be said for the offensive line and the running game. I know that part’s better.”
