Lang owned Scott Mitchell and Charlie Batch jerseys growing up, and thinks it's pretty cool that now his son will be able to wear a T.J. Lang Lions jersey. The Packers, due to their tradition of staying away from free agents and keeping their squad "home grown", are probably the favorites in signing Lang to a new contract. Lang has made a decision to come home and join the Detroit Lions.
"I had a couple of great visits", Lang said. "Took a visit to Detroit, had a great visit out there with all the coaches and everybody and just loved the attitude around the facility". It's been about four days since I got a good night's sleep. As a rock-steadky starter for the Green Bay Packers over the last six of his eight years in the National Football League, he's helped make some of Lions fans' most painful moments possible. "Honestly, it was exciting a little bit of the time, but it was stressful". "I'm glad I've only had to do this one time in my career". He drafted starters Taylor Decker and Graham Glasgow last offseason and signed free agent Rick Wagner to a five-year, $47.5 million contract on Thursday, replacing long-time starter Riley Reiff. For the Seahawks, signing Lang would be a change of course after assembling a dirt-cheap and very unimpressive offensive line in 2016, which often showed in their performances.
He had surgery on his hip in January but said Sunday he will be ready for training camp.
