Report: Atlanta Falcons leave Lions’ GM Bob Quinn at trade deadline alter

As you know by now, the NFL trade deadline has passed and other than trading away safety Quandre Diggs for a fifth-round draft pick, the Detroit Lions did not make a move.

But, according to a report from Ian Rapoport, Lions GM Bob Quinn tried to get a deal done for Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman but when it came down to it, the Falcons decided they did not want to part ways with their starting running back.

Running back is certainly a position of need for the Lions as starter Kerryon Johnson will be out until at least Week 16 with a knee injury.

Nation, does it make you feel better to know the Lions at least tried to get a deal done for a running back?
