I found this read on Dahl this morning, for those interested. I will say that I’m generally not in favor of guys who wait until the last year of their contract to suddenly appear to be worthy of a roster spot. There could be valid reasons for that, injuries or poor coaching in his 1st 2 years, whatever. And maybe the guy isn’t going to make the team anyway, so all this talk amounts to nothing.
But - as a Lions fan for a long time, I always like to see guys develop into usable players that improve the team in some way, and maybe this guy will do that. Maybe not as a starter, but if he’s good on ST and can backup the 3 IOL positions AND give you a block on offense as an FB in short yardage, then that’s all to the good. You gotta have guys at the bottom of the roster that can fill in as necessary without costing you a win. I’m hoping Dahl becomes one of those guys.
