Willie Young spent years chasing after Matthew Stafford in practices. As a fellow Lion, he never got to actually hit Stafford, of course.
The player himself took to Twitter and appeared to confirm the move.
A Detroit Lion since 2010, Willie Young is now a Chicago Bear.
“It is my ninth year, and I can say in my years, I’ve never seen this,” Mosley said. “Never.”
This time, it is not Ndamukong Suh being fined – at least not so far.
Penalties and the Detroit Lions, an apparently inseparable pair, teamed up again Sunday, and this time Detroit could not escape the implications of its mistakes.
For Detroit Lions defensive end Willie Young, the best way to describe the inexplicable ability of Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is to invoke the mind-numbing talent of Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson.
After apparently having a lot to say to New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, Detroit Lions defensive end Willie Young was relatively reticent with the media during weekend practices.
Any time a defense can shut down a team that went 12-4 the previous season and enjoys a three-time Super Bowl champion quarterback at the helm, the defense unequivocally can claim a good day at the office.
It’s not a 100% sure thing, but looking back at the last five Super Bowl winners it stands out.
