Detroit Lions linebacker Trevor Bates makes PFF’s All-Preseason team When the Detroit Lions cut their roster down to 53 players Isaac Nauta Jersey 2019 , there were plenty of fans who went scrambling to look up who linebacker Trevor Bates was. The 2016 seventh-round pick by the Colts didn’t show up on many training camp observations, and he didn’t make any big eye-popping plays in the preseason. Yet the 25-year-old linebacker made the team over veteran Jonathan Freeny, who was regularly repping ahead of him in camp.So why did Bates make the team? Pro Football Focus offered some clarity after they announced their 2018 NFL All-Preseason Team. Bates actually made the squad, but not as a linebacker. Rather, Bates earned a phenomenal 90.7 grade at special teams according to PFF.“Bates saw playing time in five of the six special teams phases for the Lions this preseason, including 18 snaps on punt or kick coverage,” PFF’s Gordon McGuinness wrote. “From those plays Color Rush Isaac Nauta Jersey , he registered four tackles, tied for second-most in the NFL this preseason.”Midway through the preseason, the Lions lost Steve Longa for the year due to a torn ACL. Longa was one of the team’s better special teams players last season. Now it appears that role belongs to Bates, and based on his preseason performance, he may be a pretty darn good replacement. UPDATE WELP: The Lions have waived Trevor Bates. However, he could return to the team’s practice squad. The Lions clearly need someone to put pressure on quarterbacks, and are taking a look at a couple of the top prospects in that regard this week.According to Dave Birkett of the  Cheap Isaac Nauta Jersey , the Lions are bringing Kentucky’s Josh Allen in for a visit this week, and will also meet with Michigan’s Rashan Gary at their local pro day Friday.The Lions pick eighth, which may be too low to grab Allen, who is also visiting the 49ers this week.(It’s effectively a free look at Gary, since teams can work out multiple players from their area and local colleges, beyond the standard 30 visits each team can use.)While those two get lumped into the same category, they had very different final seasons in college. Allen had 17 sacks at Kentucky to lead the SEC and rank second in the country. Gary Isaac Nauta Jersey Womens , who shows all the physical tools necessary to fulfill the role, had 3.5 sacks last year.The Lions finally walked away from the Ezekiel Ansah experiment this year. He’s still unsigned, as the injuries that plagued him in Detroit are also suppressing his market. But the Lions need was so profound they gave Trey Flowers (7.5 sacks last year) a $90 million contract in free agency.The Lions have also met with some of the top quarterbacks in the draft (Dwayne Haskins and Kyler Murray).
