Justin Durant, the Detroit Lions’ newest outside linebacker, has several passions in his life. Not surprisingly, his job and his family rank among them. But you might not know the 6’1″, 240-pound linebacker also has a lifelong passion for music.
Recently, I spoke with Durant about his love of music, and how moving to Detroit has helped that passion bloom into a creative outlet.
The last time the Detroit Lions were this close to the playoffs, Barry Sanders was in their backfield.
Sanders now is in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, a place few if any of the recent Lions will end up. His former team has been rebuilt by GM Martin Mayhew and coach Jim Schwartz, and a win over San Diego on Saturday will secure Detroit an NFC wild-card slot.
Zac Snyder got hooked on the Lions after his dad took him to a Monday Night Football game against the Los Angeles Raiders in 1990. The show put on by Barry Sanders and Bo Jackson that night was only surpassed by what Zac could do with Barry in a game of Tecmo Super Bowl.
