Lions LB Devon Kennard joins Free Press' Dave Birkett to chat about improvement of the defense, Matt Patricia, more at Super Bowl LIII, Feb. 1, 2019.

The Detroit Lions had internal discussions about troubled running back Kareem Hunt but ultimately decided not to pursue the running back in free agency, general manager Bob Quinn said Monday at Ford Field in a forum for season-ticket holders.

Hunt, who was released by the Kansas City Chiefs in December after video surfaced of him shoving and kicking a woman at a Cleveland hotel, signed a one-year deal with the Cleveland Browns on Monday.
