The Detroit Lions have a new defensive quality control coach. The Lions hired former Raiders and Chargers assistant Addison Lynch this week.

Lynch got quite a welcome from the defensive backs. After being announced to the positional meeting room by DBs coach Aubrey Pleasant, the players took it upon themselves to show Lynch what they’re all about.

That means up-downs, 40 of them. Everyone does them, from head coach Dan Campbell on down to practice squad aspirants. Coaches are not immune, and Lynch got his out of the way early. As Campbell explained before Friday’s practice,

“I saw the beginning of it and then I started walking – I thought he did pretty good. I will say this about him, so the DBs were in there and they were – he had been announced in the DB room the night before and (Pleasant) AP had kind of announced him and so they’re all like, ‘40 of them things, man, 40,’ and he just walks in the door right, and so he’s like, ‘What are you guys talking about?’ And so, he finally figured it out and he’s like, ‘I’ll do them right here.’ He was going to do them on the carpet in the meeting room and (Lions Defensive Coordinator Aaron Glenn) AG’s like, ‘Oh, hold on. We’ll do them out in the –.’ So, he was great, man. It’s good to have him, he’ll be an asset for us.”

Lynch completed the reps and then vomited into the nearest trash can, a fact that made Campbell smile with a devilish grin. Welcome to Detroit, Addison Lynch!
