Lions acquire OT Robinson from Rams and sign OT Kouandjio

Detroit Lions trade for Los Angeles Rams OT Greg Robinson

Detroit Lions trade for Los Angeles Rams OT Greg Robinson

Bob Quinn must love him some SEC football.

Kouandjio was one of two offensive tackles signed by the Lions as they wrapped up minicamp, joining Greg Robinson, a former second overall pick who was picked up in a trade with the Los Angeles Rams.

The Lions have needs along the offensive line after starting left tackle Taylor Decker suffered a shoulder injury that required surgery. Clearly, the Lions were smart to take a proactive approach to finding a potential replacement. It is possible that Decker begins the season on the sidelines instead of on the field. The thinking was that Robinson entered the league as a bust waiting to happen, due in part to the fundamental differences between the incredibly simple offense and blocking schemes at Auburn and the far more complicated assignments at the next level.

On June 7, Kouandjio visited the Lions.

The speaker mentioned that Scalise "is likely really frustrated that he's not going to be able to play in the baseball game". He had found an entry wound for the bullet, but couldn't find the exit wound, and was concerned about internal injuries.

What Quinn did Thursday is something any novice do-it-yourselfer can appreciate: He stopped at the hardware store on his way home from work and loaded up his cart with different patch kits for his wall.

Lions coach Jim Caldwell said Thursday that he's not concerned with what happened with the Rams and is focused on what Robinson can do with the Lions.

"Obviously some things will change in that regard, how we'll move which guy and those kinds of things", Caldwell said. "That's what we're all about". We're trying to get better and we've got to get better fast. He said there are times when one could "make a training film" out of how well Robinson blocks, but then there are times when he's "all over the place with his feet, all over the place with his hands". The 24-year-old started 14 games at left tackle in 2016. By Carlos Monarrez, DFP. He played left tackle and struggled mightily his first two seasons. The Lions confirmed the move.

Robinson originally signed a four-year, $21.3-million contract, including a $13.8-million signing bonus, according to spotrac.com. "No one's flawless, but I think those things are behind him". I just think it's going to be a situation where we're going to improve. "For us, we know he certainly has ability, he's very capable and we're happy to have him". " Are you seeing the domination right now?" So getting a sixth-round pick is better than getting absolutely nothing.
