Lions reportedly sign Pro Bowl DT Mike Daniels

Mike Daniels

Two days after his surprising release from the Green Bay Packers, Mike Daniels has signed on with one of their division rivals.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Daniels will sign with the Detroit Lions after receiving interest from nearly a dozen teams.

It’s a real coup for the Lions, who strengthen their defensive front even more while adding a player who has been a key part of a division rival for several seasons. With Daniels, Trey Flowers, and Damon Harrison on the defensive line, the Lions will be extremely tough to run against in 2019.

The decision also comes as a bit of a surprise. Daniels had been eager to sign with a contender, and the Lions are not considered a likely playoff team. Perhaps the defensive tackle saw something that others aren’t seeing — and perhaps the opportunity for a pair of revenge games against Green Bay played into his thinking, too.
