The Detroit Lions are adding some experience to their front office.
According to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, the Lions plan to add former Kansas City Chiefs and Cleveland Browns general manager John Dorsey as a senior personnel executive.
Dorsey, 60, was the Chefs GM from 2013-2016 and Browns GM from 2017-2019 and worked as a consultant for the Philadelphia Eagles last season.
The ex-GM brings plenty of experience to a Lions front office that will be overseen by first-time GM Brad Holmes.
The first order of business for Dorsey and Holmes will likely be finding a trade partner for 32-year-old quarterback Matthew Stafford.
Stafford reportedly expressed a “desire for a fresh start” following meetings with team officials and the Lions plan to “begin exploring trade options in the coming weeks,” according to Pelissero.
