The Detroit Lions did not have the best 2021 season. They had the worst record in the entire National Football League last year. The Lions lost over 10 games straight. Their first taste of victory came in week 13 when they defeated the Minnesota Vikings with two points. Detroit ended its last NFL campaign with a record of 3-13-1. The Lions definitely do not want this to repeat. They are already making moves with Aidan Hutchinson to prevent a fall next season.

Who is Aidan Hutchinson?

Aidan Hutchinson is a product of the famous University of Michigan. He was a defensive star in college. Hutchinson won numerous awards in his senior year including the Ted Hendricks and Lombardi Awards. He was also named the Heisman Trophy runner-up.
