Am leaving: Terrion Arnold Accepted a deal over…read more…

He hasn’t played a snap yet, but Terrion Arnold is no stranger to making headlines in the NFL. He recently made waves for jokingly trash-talking his mother, while a conversation about the Las Vegas Raiders warranted a response from their front office. Arnold certainly has the mouth of a defensive back.

The newest quote stems from questions about his unique jersey choice, No. 0. His reason why is simple: “ain’t nobody like me.” Expanding on that, Arnold said:

When I say it ain’t nobody like me, it’s talking about the secondary. Obviously, last year in this secondary, we had ups and downs, but we’re going to be exciting, we’re going to be dynamic, we’re going to play fast and it ain’t going to be nobody like us.

That quote highlights two excellent qualities about Arnold. The first is clearly his supreme confidence, a necessity for any professional athlete. The other takeaway is that he has fully bought into being a part of the Lions’ secondary. Based on last season, fresh blood was needed in that room for them to reach new heights.

Selected 24th overall, Arnold may be the highlight of Detroit’s offseason additions, regardless of position. However, he is far from alone as a fresh face in the Lions’ future defensive meetings. Veteran Carlton Davis III was a trade acquisition from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, while Amik Robertson was signed during free agency.
