Mike Daniels, DT
And the fact Daniels went on the record to say he came to Detroit due to the presence of second-year head coach Matt Patricia was a feather in his cap (and a pencil on his ear). Yet, the former Packer would play in only nine games and record a mere 10 tackles and a single sack in 2019.
After that injury-plagued season, it’s understandable why the Lions would want to move on from the soon-to-be 31-year old. Yet, the recent parting of the ways between the team and Damon Harrison might change things.
Perhaps retaining Daniels for another season on a more team-friendly, prove-it deal would give the veteran an opportunity to make good on the large contract he signed last year.
