Looks like this is the third time Aubrey Pleasant and LaFleur have been on the same team, they were also together on the Redskins (where Pleasant started off on the offensive side before switching to the defense) and the Rams.
He's probably just helping LaFleur get defensive perspectives, since Aubrey Pleasant surely has been scouting his division rivals which the Packers have been for the last two years.
Also, to your point dtb, LaFleur wanted more.of the Rams defense and this guy coached the Rams CBs for three years.
Though, one has to ask why didn't he stay with the Rams? Lions head coach said he loved Aubrey Pleasant, but simply that the DBs were not improving, of course the Lions play an extremely high risk style too.
