Brad Holmes defends Trinity Benson trade: ‘The intent on Trinity was not 2021’

Photo by Amy Lemus/NurPhoto via The Lions general manager says he always believed Benson was a developmental project for the future. Right before 2021 Detroit Lions season started, they were in a tough position at wide receiver. Having watched their top three receivers from the previous year leave in free agency, first-time general manager Brad Holmes rolled the dice on some free agent options. Tyrell Williams looked good enough in camp, but Detroit lacked a No. 2 that was playing well enough. Breshad Perriman was the presumed starter opposite Williams, but after an...

Lines.com surveyed 908 sports fans, AKA a group of miserable people who hate Detroit, and asked fans “to call out the teams they felt had the most attractive followers.” Like on many stats sheets this season, the Lions came in dead last — only 2.1 percent of those surveyed say Detroit has the most attractive fans.
