The Detroit Lions roster is (mostly) set for the 2021 season, which means it’s time to stop for a second and evaluate how the Lions’ offseason went. It was obviously one of the most active offseasons this franchise has seen in quite some time... maybe ever. For owner Sheila Ford Hamp, it was her first full offseason and one she’ll likely be judged by for years to come. A new general manager, head coach, quarterback and an overturn of the roster the likes we haven’t seen in a while.

General manager Brad Holmes was at the center of it. He helped orchestrate the Matthew Stafford trade with his former team, he tweaked the front office to his liking, and he was ultimately responsible for all the roster acquisition between January and now. And with the 53-man roster now set and the practice squad assembled, we can see the work that he’s done. Plus, after meeting with the media on Thursday, we have a general idea of what the plan was, why he made some of the decisions he did, and his view of the future.

So the question is simple: Is he doing a good job?

Throughout this offseason, Holmes has been one of the most popular general managers in Lions history. He scored a 97 approval rating after the Stafford trade and before free agency. And after the 2021 NFL Draft, his approval score actually went up a percentage point.

March 2021 (pre-free agency): 97 percent approval
May 2021 (post-draft): 98 percent approval

Now that the Lions have a roster in place for the 2021 season what do you think of the job he has done?
