Lions agree to deal with Rams executive Brad Holmes as GM

The Detroit Lions desperately need to figure out how to draft better players and they're leaning on Brad Holmes to lead the way, drawing on his expertise with the Los Angeles Rams.

Holmes and the Lions agreed to terms Thursday on a deal Thursday that makes him their general manager. He led the Rams' college scouting department for eight years and started his 18-year career with them as a public relations intern in 2003.

Unlike Detroit's previous search in 2016 when it hired Bob Quinn after interviewing just three candidates, it chose to give Holmes a shot after he was one of 12 to formally discuss the job with the team.
