“It was a good season,” Zettel said Saturday at Penn State’s Thon Explorers Program. “Preferably,womens Myles Jack Jerseyyou know?”, I’d like to end it with a ring

Every team and player’s goal is to hoist the Lombardi Trophy. The Lions came close to competing for the title, barely missing out on a playoff berth., finishing 9-7 and second in the NFC North

With former New England Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia taking the reins as head coach, that goal is front and center for Zettel, a Michigan native. After bursting onto the scene in 2017, pushing Detroit toward becoming a legitimate Super Bowl contender., Zettel hopes his torrid pace continues into this year

His second sack helped the Lions close out Minnesota late in the fourth quarter.,<womens T.Y.

Zettel’s breakout performance came just two weeks after former Monday Night Football analyst Jon Gruden compared him to pass-rushing great Jared Allen and dubbed Zettel as his “Gruden Grinder” before Detroit took on the New York Giants.

“He pops off the screen in his second year,” Grudenwomens Yannick Ngakoue Jersey, commented at the time. “He’s making his presence felt.”, now the coach of the Oakland Raiders
