Maybe Bob Quinn isn’t the reason the Lions pass on Tua Tagovailoa

Detroit Lions fans have a great debate raging; to pick or not to pick Tua Tagovailoa? That is the question. The answer won’t come until April 23rd when the NFL will conduct the first round of the draft. However, most of us believe that we already know the answer.

General manager Bob Quinn was beyond emphatic that the Lions have no interest in trading away their franchise quarterback Matthew Stafford. That would certainly count as a vote of confidence in Matthew as the Lions starting signal-caller for next season.

Couple that with the mandate that Quinn and head coach Matt Patricia have been given to win now and it would seem very unlikely that the Lions will be calling Tagovailoa’s name with the third pick in the draft.
