When we last checked in with Bob Quinn’s approval rating among Detroit Lions fans, he was entering the first draft of his life as a general manager. At the time, 74 percent of fans approved of the job Quinn had done leading up to the NFL draft.
Since then, Quinn has been extremely busy. Though he didn’t swing one draft day trade, he did load the roster with linemen on the both side of the ball. After beefing up the roster via the draft, Quinn has been tinkering the roster, adding notable players like wide receiver Andre Roberts and undrafted free agents Cole Wick and Jay Lee.
But one major issue has plagued Quinn’s offseason: the status of Stephen Tulloch. Despite telling the linebacker way back in February he would not be a part of the Lions team this season, Quinn has yet to release or trade the linebacker. Maybe he has a legitimate reason for doing what he’s doing, but even if he does, he’s leaving Tulloch in a lurch. When, or if, the Lions finally release him from the team, Tulloch will have little time to find and adjust to his new home. Giving Tulloch a fair chance to find a new team may not be Quinn's number one priority — and it may not even be his responsibility at all — but this dumbfounding delay is not a good look.
Here’s how Quinn’s approval rating has changed since becoming the Lions general manager in January:
February 2016: 72 percent approval
April 2016: 74 percent approval
Putting together all five months of his employment with the Lions, how do you feel about the job Bob Quinn is doing as general manager?
