EDTShareTweetShareShareLions CB Rashaan Melvin ‘excited’ to be in better scheme fit in DetroitCary Edmondson-USA TODAY SportsDetroit Lions cornerback Rashaan Melvin has had two drastically different seasons in the past two years. In 2017, Melvin was a solid outside cornerback with the Indianapolis Colts, making himself a fairly high-priority free agent. He was in talks to return to the Colts for his third year there, but ultimately chose to join the Raiders instead on a one-year, $6.5 million deal.The results were bad. Very bad. As our own Mansur Shaheen detailed earlier this offseason, Melvin’s play was downright ugly at times, and it resulted in one of Oakland’s biggest free agent signings riding the bench for a portion of the season. Melvin went public with his displeasure and discomfort in Oakland:Now with the Lions and in contention for the starting spot opposite Darius Slay, Melvin is already feeling more comfortable in Detroit.“Unfortunately (in Oakland) they wanted me to do something I wasn’t as comfortable with,” Melvin said. “I’m here now and it fits me the way I feel like I should be playing.” The veteran cornerback didn’t go into specifics about what exactly about Detroit fits his skillset better, but he did mention the appeal of a man-to-man scheme was part of the reason he signed with the Lions.Historically Graham Glasgow Jersey, the Patriots-style defense that Matt Patricia comes from is one of the most man-coverage heavy schemes each year in the NFL. Melvin, himself, briefly made an appearance on a Patriots-style defense, when he spent eight games with New England in 2015—though he only played 49 defensive snaps over that time.Melvin clearly believes, now back in that scheme, he can get back to the kind of play that earned him high marks from PFF: “Before I signed to Oakland I had large expectations for myself to be the best that I can be. Certain things that expired, and I didn’t live up to the expectations,” Melvin said. “But I’m so fortunate to be here, to be a Detroit Lion, to put my best foot forward Jake Rudock Jersey, to be able to get back to where I was and being the best player I can be for this team.” We’re over two weeks past when the Detroit Lions made the shocking trade of defensive captain Quandre Diggs to the Seattle Seahawks for a swap of a seventh-round pick for a fifth-round pick, but many are still left scratching their heads about the move. However, Diggs provided a little clarity about his point of view in a phone interview with the Detroit Free Press this week. According to Diggs, he believes he was traded in an effort to silence him and control the locker room. “I think it was more of just a control thing,” Diggs told the Free Press. “Them wanting to control the locker room. Control the locker room, control voices in the locker room.”Diggs was voted team captain for the first time this year, just a calendar year after this coaching staff and front office had decided his play was worthy of a contract extension. By Diggs’ admission, he took the role of captain seriously and was vocally present about issues facing the team. “I’m a vocal guy, so when you’re vocal and when you’re competitive, I’m a competitive guy Danny Amendola Jersey ,” Diggs said. “I’m competitive as shit. I hate losing. I go and I put my body on the line every week doing hella treatment, doing all these other things and at the end of the day it didn’t work out.”Diggs told the Free Press that there were just disagreements in Detroit on the way things should be done, and that the details will eventually come out, but at this point he has no ill will against Detroit. He says he’s simply happy where he’s at in Seattle, where he can be himself.“At the end of the day, I’m at a new organization that respects the players, they respect your personality and the people that you are,” Diggs said. “I’m just happy about my situation. Those guys, they do what they do, (what) they feel like what’s best for the organization. I don’t fault them Trey Flowers Jersey, but at the end of the day, I’m good where I’m at.”This is obviously a bad look for the Lions, but it may not be the end of their personality problems. Star cornerback Darius Slay, who was very vocal about being hurt by the trade of Diggs, seems to concur with the reasoning behind the trade. The following Tweet from Dave Birkett was retweeted by Slay: Slay previously stated that he wouldn’t care if he was traded from the Lions (though it’s important to note that he did not request a trade). Detroit opted to keep him at the trade deadline despite hearing multiple offers from teams. With only one year remaining on his deal after 2019, we’ll see what the Lions decide to do with Slay this offseason.
