It was a marquee signing and Flowers made his presence known simply with the photo of him signing his contract with the Lions:Okay, what probably first sticks out is the fact that he doesn’t exactly have the facial expression of a person who just signed a deal that will pay him $56 million guaranteed. But look at little closer.That sweatshirt he’s wearing says the word “CHAMPIONSHIPS” on it. Though the shirt is officially a Meek Mill hoodie based on his latest album, he is certainly sending a message, whether intentionally or not. He doesn’t just want money in Detroit Danny Amendola Jersey
, he wants championships. Obviously, the money helps, but Flowers was very specific on where he wanted to play in free agency, and Matt Patricia was reportedly a big reason why.As someone who has already won a couple championships in New England, hopefully Flowers can win a couple more in Detroit.Report: Lions ‘hopeful’ Ezekiel Ansah can play vs. 49ers after MRI on shoulder On Monday Christian Jones Jersey White
, the optimism surrounding the Detroit Lions’ pass rush lasted an entire quarter. Ezekiel Ansah and Devon Kennard each picked up a sack early and gave rookie Sam Darnold some heat in his debut. However, Ansah went down with an injury after just 19 defensive snaps, and the Lions’ pass rush vanished. They wouldn’t record a sack for the rest of the night.Head coach Matt Patricia didn’t provide an update on Ansah’s shoulder injury after the game and he said his equivalent to “check the report” during Wednesday’s press conference. But a report from Adam Schefter suggests the Lions got good news regarding the Lions’ best pass rusher. According to Schefter, an MRI revealed that Ansah did not suffer a significant injury and the Lions are “hopeful he can play” against the 49ers this weekend. Last week, the Lions had only five defensive linemen active against the Jets Ricky Wagner Jersey White
, so Ziggy’s importance to the team cannot be overstated. In Ansah’s place, the Lions mostly played Kerry Hyder against the Jets, but that limited his ability to also play on the inside in some packages. Ansah makes the entire defense better, there’s little doubt about that. However, if he can go Tracy Walker Jersey White
, how effective will he look? We’ve seen an injured Ansah out there before, and it hasn’t been pretty. At this point, though, the Lions don’t really seem to have any better options.
