After a relatively quiet day on Monday, the Detroit Lions started making some serious moves on Tuesday. Chief among those transactions were the agreements to sign two linebacker: Giants Devon Kennard and Bears Christian Jones.
Though Kennard was a player some linked to the Lions—credit to our own Mike Payton there—Jones was a signing that came a little bit out of nowhere. So in order to get to know the two a little better, let’s take a look at the instant analysis of the two from across the web.
With Kennard, there was immediately some confusion as to what role he would play, as the Giants used him in several different ways.
Just running back some Giants film quickly, looks like Kennard was primarily used as an edge rusher, as opposed an off-ball OLB.
