Detroit Lions general manager Bob Quinn says his team DID consider signing Kareem Hunt … but ultimately passed, saying, “I want good people in this organization.”
The Lions brass held a Q&A session for season-ticket holders at Ford Field on Monday … when Quinn opened up to a fan on why Kareem is in a Browns jersey now and not a Lions one.
Bob didn’t hold back … saying the troubled RB did NOT fit the mold of the kind of player they want on their team.

“We talked about it internally and he’s a player that we didn’t feel comfortable bringing to the Lions for numerous issues.”
“I stand by that. That’s my word. I want good players and I want good people in this organization.”
Of course, Browns GM John Dorsey seems to disagree … after signing Kareem on Monday he said, “Given what we know about Kareem through our extensive research, we believe he deserves a second chance.”
The Lions don’t play the Browns in 2019 … but, it seems now both fanbases will be keeping a close eye on the RB next season.
