T.J. Land will miss OTAs with his newfound team, the Detroit Lions, but that won’t stop him from telling the Lions coaching all he knows about his old team and how the Packers were so successful in their recent meetings.
“I was talking to a defensive line coach actually just yesterday. He was asking me, ‘I kind of felt like you guys knew what we were doing.’ I just gave him some tips,” Lang said, per mlive,com. I mean, we kind of studied film. It was a great conversation because he’s like, ‘We need to do a great job of switching it up.’ I bring a little bit of knowledge to obviously some keys and tips of what I’ve seen throughout the years, but also just what offensive linemen are looking at when they watch you guys on film and how we try to attack you guys and what we really feel about you guys.
“So it’s been some good conversations so far. And hopefully once we get into OTAs and get on the practice field and start running around, I’ll just be watching and not participating much. But yeah, like I said, I’m kind of excited to share that information with those guys, and also on the flip side, learn something from them, too. How they used to attack same and what they think about going against offensive linemen. Yeah, it’s going to be pretty positive and it’s only going to make us better.”
