T.J. Lang signs with Lions

It is to my great displeasure to announce the 8 year veteran lineman for the Green Bay Packers, T.J. Lang was signed by the Detroit Lions today to a three year deal.

Lang, drafted in the fourth round of the 2009 draft, has started at both right and left tackle, as well as both right and left guard positions for the Packers. He made the official switch to right guard in 2013. In 2016 Lang was selected to the Pro Bowl.

Turning 30 in September, Lang was a part of one of the best offensive line units in the NFL. As a result, Lang’s value exceeded a point that made sense for the Packers.

Looking forward

The loss of Lang will no doubt increase the Packers focus on finding quality offensive linemen in the draft. A name to keep an eye on is Forrest Lamp out of Western Kentucky. A true guard, Lamp is expected to be drafted at the end of the first round/start of the second. Lamp is one of the best lineman to come out of college this year.

From all of us at Packernet, best of luck T.J.
