GM: Lions ‘open for business’, ready to accept second choice

Detroit Lions general manager Brad Holmes wants people to know the team is ready to part ways with the No. 2 pick in the 2022 NFL Draft for the right price.

“I’m never afraid to move, so we’re definitely open for business, always,” Holmes said when asked if it was possible to trade the second overall pick. by Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.

Holmes, 42, became the Lions’ general manager in January 2021 and wasted no time in showing he was ready to take a big step. Before the end of his first month on the job, Holmes sent quarterback Matthew Stafford to the Los Angeles Rams in exchange for quarterback Jared Goff, a third-round pick in 2021 and first-round picks in 2022 and 2023 .

The Lions, however, stayed put on draft day and did not trade picks until day three of the 2021 NFL Draft.

Detroit was winless in the first 11 games of the 2021 season before winning in three of the last six weeks to finish 3-13-1. The Lions are expected to pick second to the Jacksonville Jaguars and will also own the 31st or 32nd pick, depending on the outcome of the Rams’ Super Bowl game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
