Detroit Lions jersey history album

1973 John Brady

In 1973, the Lions added silver trim along the sleeve stripes.  The Honolulu blue stripes are woven into the material.  Wilson durene knit size 46.  Issued in 1973, as the 1974-1979 Wilson tail tags were different. 
 
Brady, a tight end from Washington, was one of the Lions' third round draft selections in 1973.  He spent the 1973 season on the injured reserve list due a thigh muscle injury.  He played in three preseason games in 1974, then missed the regular season due to a hamstring injury. 
 
He is listed in the Lions' Press - Radio - TV Facts Books (now called media guides) from 1973, 1974 and 1975.
