In a summer that has been dominated by stories of contract holdouts from Darius Slay and Snacks Harrison, Detroit has given its first extension of training camp to … reserve offensive lineman Joe Dahl, Kyle Meinke of Mlive reports.
The extension is for two years, according to a source. NFL Network was first to report the news.
Dahl was taken in the fifth round of GM Bob Quinn’s first draft class, back in 2016, and has played just 251 offensive snaps since. That might make him seem like an odd choice for a multi-year extension, but the Lions really value versatility under Quinn and Matt Patricia, and now they’re putting their money where their mouth is.
