His dad always made sure he had the trendiest things, fiberglass skateboards and new dirt bikes that were the envy of the neighborhood. But one of the best gifts Detroit Lions GM Brad Holmes ever received was the weight set his father, Melvin, bought him in eighth grade. Holmes kept the weights on the screened-in back patio at his house in Florida.
Training Camp came to an end not too long ago. We got to see some names that we didn't expect to take over (Victor Bolden for one) and that left me wondering, who is going to be the face of the Detroit Lions receiving this season? Let's be frank, there's not a boatload of talent to be seen inside the wideout room.
However, he will be entering the 2021 season at just 25 years old. And, with the Lions' lack of depth in the receivers room, I don't think it'd be the worst thing in the world if Holmes & Co. took a flier on Ford. In 2020, Ford suited up for 10 games (one start) with the Dolphins, and hauled in 28 balls for 276 yards.
