The Detroit Lions honored the greatest running back of the Super Bowl era this weekend. In advance of the team’s Week 2 home opener against the Seattle Seahawks, the team unveiled a statue in at Ford Field of franchise icon Barry Sanders.
The NFL’s all-time leading rusher is forever immortalized in front of the home of the Lions with a statue capturing Sanders making one of his trademark ankle-breaking moves.
Check out the statue at the corner of Brush and Montcalm when you’re downtown. Until then, here are some photos from the Barry Sanders statue unveiling.
