Done Deal: Kevin Zeitler Collaborate with Bengals on a contract of $300M due to

The Detroit Lions targeted veteran offensive lineman Kevin Zeitler early in the free agency process. Even though an agreement was not quickly reached, the veteran expressed to local reporters in a video conference he is looking forward to joining a successful team that has so much talent along the offensive line.

“Lions reached out right away in free agency made it known they wanted me to be here right away,” Zeitler said. “It took a little longer than we thought it would, but I’m glad to be here. It all worked out. It’s really exciting meeting everyone today, and I definitely made the right decision

Playing for the Ravens last season, the 34-year-old observed Detroit’s stout offense during his extensive film review. “Luckily we had a lot of cross film last year — just with Lions and the Ravens and stuff and NFC games and all that,” Zeitler explained. “Being able to see them on film and watch them on TV, it was like, ‘Okay, they like to run the ball.

They are taking over games. It’s all great stuff.’ I’m honored the team wanted me to be a part of that. And my only goal is to make sure I come in here, work my butt off, and make sure I keep being a part of that standard that’s been set here.” It is the veteran’s understanding he will play at right guard in Detroit, a position he has extensively played throughout his career.
