Atlanta Falcons sign former Lions safety Duron Harmon

Michael Chow-USA TODAY NETWORK The veteran leader will takes his talents down south. The Atlanta Falcons announced on Thursday they have signed free agent safety Duron Harmon to an undisclosed deal. Harmon, of course, played for the Detroit Lions in 2020 after the team sent a fifth-round pick to the New England Patriots to acquire him and a seventh-round pick. Harmon immediately became a locker room leader for Detroit, earning a captain spot in his only season with the team. Harmon’s play on the field was mostly reliable on an otherwise unreliable defense.

7-round mock 1.0: Lions move back, solidify offensive line

Photo by Mitchell Layton/ Detroit’s able to slide back a couple of spots and address more needs in Ryan Mathews’ first mock draft of 2021. If nothing else, 2021’s offseason will be remembered as a stark transition from one era to the next in Detroit Lions’ history. In the matter of a couple of months, Detroit traded their franchise quarterback, hired a new general manager, and nearly turned over the entire coaching staff. It felt like a whirlwind because it was, and things haven’t slowed down once Brad Holmes and Dan Campbell were hired; the two have started...

The Dan Campbell effect is making a difference this offseason

Detroit Lions‘ new head coach Dan Campbell has been very vocal and visible so far. Will its effect finally turn around this forlorn franchise?

POLL: Who will be the Lions’ best defensive player in 2021?

Photo by Steven King/Icon Sportswire via Who will help turn around this defense in 2021? If head coach Dan Campbell is going to turn this thing around, he’s going to have to start with the Detroit Lions’ defense. It’s a unit that hasn’t finished in the top 10 of the league since their feared 2014 crew, and Campbell is inheriting a team that allowed more points than any other team in 2020. That being said, there are some players on the squad that could help mount a turnaround. Last year’s team defensive MVP, Romeo Okwara, returns after a 10-sack season. Jeff...

Open thread: Who’s your pick for 2021 NFL MVP?

Kirthmon F. Dozier, Detroit Free Press Matthew Stafford is a lucrative bet. Yesterday’s notes highlighted Jared Goff’s 80/1 odds for 2021 NFL MVP. It’s a long shot that won’t happen with the Detroit Lions in rebuild mode, but there are plenty of better odds to choose from—most notably, a familiar face in Los Angeles. Question of the day: Who’s your pick for 2021 NFL MVP My answer: I’d take the odds on Stafford. Let’s look at those with better odds than Stafford: Patrick Mahomes: won the award two years ago and has set the bar very high. Players...

With sports betting now legal in the state of Detroit, now is a great time to throw away some money on a futures NFL bet for the first time! Right on cue, BetOnline.ag dropped odds for the 2021 NFL MVP just a mere nine months before the award is handed. As you may expect, the shortest odds involve some of the league’s best quarterbacks. Patrick Mahomes leads the way with 4-to-1 odds. Aaron Rodgers is right behind him at 9-to-1, and Josh Allen is 10-to-1. Want to take the homer...
