Written by Nate

Even after the big, but sad news that occurred around quarterback Matthew Stafford possibly being moved out of Detroit, it appears that a big name is going to be brought in to help shape up their front office and probably kickstart their rebuild.

Former general manager of the Kansas City Chiefs and Cleveland Browns, John Dorsey, is expected to be hired as a senior executive for the Lions, per NFL Network’s Tom Pelisserro.

Dorsey was most known for assembling and building rosters that are current playoff/Super Bowl contenders with the Chiefs, Browns, and the Green Bay Packers.

The talented players he drafted or acquired include offensive tackle Eric Fisher, quarterback Patrick Mahomes II, tight end Travis Kelce, and cornerback Marcus Peters for Kansas City, quarterback Baker Mayfield, running back Nick Chubb, cornerback Denzel Ward and trades for wide receiver Jarvis Landry and edge rusher Olivier Vernon for the Browns.

Dorsey is also credited for finding the talents for Green Bay’s futures, and they include MVP quarterback Aaron Rodgers and linebacker Clay Matthews III.

He will join the numerous new hires that are occurring in Detroit such as head coach Dan Campbell, general manager Brad Holmes, offensive coordinator Anthony Lynn, and defensive coordinator Aaron Glenn.
