The Lions said in March that a new contract for defensive tackle Damon Harrison wasn’t something he’d think about until after the draft and that approach appears to be having an impact on Harrison’s approach to the team’s offseason workouts.Those workouts got underway this week and Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports that Harrison has not been in attendance. He hasn’t made any comment about the reason why he’s not at the voluntary workouts Austin Bryant Detroit Lions Jersey , but he wouldn’t be the first player to stay away from his team while making a push for a new deal.It’s unclear if Harrison’s absence will push the Lions to give him what he’s looking for on the contract front. He has two years left on his deal and teams are generally reticent to open the door to renegotiating deals with that much time left on a current pact.Harrison joined the Lions in a midseason trade with the Giants last year and the team’s run defense made a noticeable turn for the better after his arrival in Detroit.Lions DL Da’Shawn Hand is the best rookie interior lineman through 3 weeks Up until Sunday night, the Detroit Lions defense didn’t have much to hang their hat on. Their run defense was porous at best, disastrous at worst. Their pass defense was almost just as bad, allowing Sam Darnold and Jimmy Garoppolo to move the ball with relative ease. Obviously, things went much better on Sunday night against the New England Patriots, but throughout it all Austin Bryant Jersey 2019 , one player has quietly performed at an impressive level: fourth-round rookie Da’Shawn Hand. Hand has been so good, in fact, that no other rookie interior defensive lineman has graded out better by Pro Football Focus’ metrics: A brief look at the box score, and you would never suspect Hand is having the type of season he is. While his 12 tackles, one tackle for loss, leads all Lions defensive linemen Austin Bryant Jersey Mens , that’s not saying much considering the rest of the Lions defensive line has been pretty bad. But even putting aside his PFF grade and his box score stats for a second, perhaps Hand’s greatest accomplishment is his immediate rise up the depth chart. Sure, the Lions’ defensive line was full of underwhelming talent and leftovers from a previous regime and scheme, but Hand managed to not only get himself a rotational role immediately, but he’s already started two games. His 92 total snap ranks third among Lions defensive linemen, only behind veterans Sylvester Williams and Ricky Jean Francois.Where Hand has really thrived in his run defense. While the Lions Womens Teez Tabor Jersey , as a team, have been downright horrible at stopping opposing running backs, it mostly hasn’t been Hand’s fault, who has been holding his ground solidly at the three and five-tech positions. In the first two games, Hand had seven “run stops,” per PFF http://www.lionslockerroom.com/authenti ... ore-jersey , tied for the most among interior defenders. Ultimately, Hand is going to need some help in order to get this Lions run defense—which currently ranks last in yardage allowed (149.3 per game) and yards per carry (5.4)—turned around. But for Hand to be leading the way as a fourth-round rookie is seriously impressive.
