After giving up 38 points and not registering a sack to quarterback Justin Herbert in their last second 41-38 win over the Los Angeles Chargers, the Detroit Lions made a move to shore up their pass rush.
Per multiple posts on X (Twitter), the Lions have brought in edge rusher Bruce Irvin to help provide a boost to their pass rush. He is expected to start out his Lions tenure on the team’s practice squad.
Prior to coming to the Motor City, Irvin spent the majority of his career with the Seattle Seahawks, where he won a Super Bowl with the famed Legion of Boom defense. He also recorded playing time with the Las Vegas Raiders (in Oakland), Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers, and Chicago Bears.
The former West Virginia first-round draft pick currently has 55.5 sacks in his career along with 16 forced fumbles and three interceptions (two of them returned for touchdowns).
Though he’ll be on the practice squad at the moment, Irvin will be joining the likes of Aidan Hutchinson, Isaiah Buggs, Benito Jones, Alim McNeill, Charles Harris and an eventual returning James Houston on the Lions defensive line.
