GREEN BAY -- Looking back, Josh Sitton said, it worked out for the best.

GREEN BAY — T.J. Lang said he was excited about the challenge he faces with the Detroit Lions after making the decision to leave the only NFL team he’s ever known for eight seasons. The team he left behind Sunday — the Green Bay Packers — has a challenge of its own, now: replacing their Pro Bowl right guard without a clear-cut heir apparent on the roster.
GREEN BAY — T.J. Lang got the news late Tuesday afternoon, a few hours before the big unveiling on television.
