Lions have hired former Texans OC George Godsey; Just not as an offensive coach…

The Lions have hired former Texans offensive coordinator George Godsey as a defensive assistant/special projects, the club announced today.

Godsey, 38, first entered the NFL with the Patriots in 2011, and had spent the past three seasons with the Texans, serving as offensive coordinator from 2015-16. After being let go by Houston earlier this year, Godsey was a candidate for the Jets’ OC vacancy, and was also linked to the University of Alabama.

Godsey played quarterback in college at Georgia Tech, where he holds several school records, and for one season in the Arena Football League before becoming a coach. He first coached at Central Florida and then the NFL’s New England Patriots before joining the Texans.

Ex Lions tight end Brandon Pettigrew arrested on Public Drunkenness (MUGSHOT)

Brandon Pettigrew looks hammered in his latest mugshot

Just how drunk do you have to be to get arrested for public drunkenness and disorderly conduct?  Well ask former Lions draft pick Brandon Pettigrew who was hammered when police arrived to the scene.

Pettigrew, a seven-year NFL veteran with the Detroit Lions prior to being waived by the team in December, was reportedly seen pushing and arguing with two men at about 2 a.m. Sunday in a parking lot outside Pretty Please Social Room at 104 Flaming Lips Alley, according to a police report.

At least 10 officers in the area responded to the scene as Pettigrew was said to be “verbally defiant” to at least 25 commands to leave the area. Police reported Pettigrew initially refused to get in the back seat of a patrol car, had slurred speech and smelled of alcohol upon arrest. He was booked in Oklahoma County Jail and released the same day.

This probably will not help his return to the NFL.

 

Former Lions player arrested again; He is crying in his mugshot

Former Lions defensive back is sad in his latest arrest

Ladies and Gentlemen, Stanley Wilson is at it again.  He has been arrested once again, and once again he was naked outside a person’s home, according to Pro Football Talk.

The Oregonian reports that police in Portland arrested Wilson on January 10 after finding him naked outside a stranger’s home. Wilson hasn’t posted bail and has been in jail since.

Wilson was also arrested on June 22 after a homeowner caught him trying to break into a house. The homeowner shot him and he ran off, and when the homeowner called 911, emergency personnel arrived and found Wilson outside the home, also naked. Wilson suffered only minor injuries from the gunshot.

He was drafted by the Detroit Lions in the third round of the 2005 NFL Draft. He played college football at Stanford.

Zach Zenner accepts Michael Bennett’s comments as “Best White RB” as a compliment

Lions have a steal in Zach Zenner

Lions have a steal in Zach Zenner

Michael Bennett did his research on former South Dakota running back Zach Zenner.  He was really impressed with the small schooler so much he called him the best white running back in the league. 

“I think the running back, man, he’s — there’s not many white running backs in the NFL but he has to be the best right now,” Bennett said of Zenner Tuesday. “He’s doing such a great job of cutbacks and hitting the hole. He’s a really good back. I know all the stuff he did in college, three straight seasons of 2,000 yards. I don’t care where you’re at, if you can do that you have got amazing talent. And I think he’s just an amazing running back, the things he can do with the ball. He got good balance, he can spin, he can catch it out of the backfield. I think he fits the offense perfectly.”

Zenner, who has led the Lions in rushing the past two weeks, responded to the comments and said he believes it is a compliment.

“Everyone’s entitled to their opinion and it sounded like he said some pretty nice stuff,” Zenner said via the Detroit Free Press. “So I’m appreciative of that and I think he’s a really good player and we’ve got to be ready to face him. He does some stuff that you just kind of say wow when you look at the tape.”
