Lions part ways with personnel executive Brian Xanders

The Lions are the latest team to part ways with a personnel man after the draft.

Senior personnel executive Brian Xanders is out in Detroit, according to multiple reports.

The move is no big surprise, as Xanders had no connections to Lions G.M. Bob Quinn, who is continuing to put together a front office with his own people. Xanders was hired by the previous regime, led by former G.M. Martin Mayhew, after working for the Broncos for five years before that.

Xanders has interviewed for the G.M. job in Miami and has been mentioned as a candidate for the G.M. vacancy in Washington.

    He should have been the GM instead of Mayhew…… Seemed as if his talent was never utilized in Detroit…..

    Hope Chris Grier didn’t hear about Xanders interviewing for his job.

    Hard to imagine a former Detroit Lions personnel guy getting fired and still being considered for a GM job somewhere else. Aren’t you supposed to have success before you get another job??

    He was the GM in Denver during the Josh McD days, although he had no say in anything.

    Quinn, the Pats guy is cleaning up that organization that’s been nothing for too long. If you’re a Lions fan, keep quiet and enjoy the ride. You’ll be at the top soon.
