Jeff Backus Rejoins Lions As Part-Time Coaching Intern
Jeff Backus has rejoined the Detroit Lions in a new capacity.
The team announced Tuesday the retired tackle will be a part-time coaching intern that will assist the offensive line this season.
Backus retired in March after missing only one game in his 12-year career.
Detroit selected him from Michigan in the first round of the 2001 NFL draft. He started his first 186 games - plus one playoff game - before a hamstring injury forced him to miss last year's Thanksgiving game against Houston.
