Meanwhile, the Lions' acquisition of Lang solidifies their offensive line both in the passing game and in the run as well.
T.J. Lang is going home.
"The last thing I relayed to them all was I really feel like we can form one of the best units in the league with all the talent we have", he said. The 29-year-old has spent his last eight seasons with Green Bay but could be tempted to join his hometown team in Detroit.
Lions gave former Packers G TJ Lang a three-year deal, per source. "Took a visit to Detroit, had a great visit out there with all the coaches and everybody and just loved the attitude around the facility". "I was no different and when this opportunity came about I got really excited about it". "Honestly, it was exciting a little bit of the time, but it was stressful".
"Right now it's just, I think the biggest thing is it's not just me making a decision on where I want to go play, what team I want to play for, what city I want to live in". I was one of them as a kid.
