Detroit Lions Roster Preview: Specialists
Things here are largely the same for the Lions. Kicker is a position with absolutely no competition as Matt Prater is definitely the Lions’ man.
Long snapper Don Muhlbach is likely going to be the long snapper for Detroit this year again, but Iowa State rookie Steven Wirtel could absolutely legitimately challenge him for the spot considering he was considered a top long snapper in college last year.
The biggest competition here is at punter, where Jack Fox and Arryn Siposs will battle it out in camp. Siposs and Fox are both more control punters than power punters and offer much of the same. It could come down to who offers the most control and hang-time.
Considering his familiarity with the team already and the fact that his competition has been placed on the COVID-19/Reserve list and will miss even more chances to impress the coaches, Fox figures to take the job this summer camp.
