PLAYERS: James Bryant
TEAMS: Detroit Lions
James Bryant’s usage, or potential usage, in the 2012 NFL season is one of the most interesting topics of the Detroit Lions’ offseason. Bryant, a former boxer and Canadian Football League player, is a fullback — a position that hasn’t been en vogue in Detroit — or in the NFL, for that matter — since [...]

Lions' Fairley arrested for DUI

Lions defensive tackle Nick Fairley was arrested Sunday on charges of DUI and attempting to elude police officers. It is the second time Fairley has been arrested in the last two months.

Rookie Lions QB Kellen Moore impresses former Lions TE Rob Rubick

Rob Rubick, a former Detroit Lions tight end, doesn’t mince words. Calling him opinionated would be an understatement. Rubick doesn’t mind telling like it is. He doesn’t hold back. During WXYZ-Detroit’s 2012 Draft Day special, Rubick called for the Lions to draft a tackle. What happened? Detroit used its first-round pick on former Iowa star [...]

Young hopes to be big fish for Lions

ALLEN PARK, Mich. - You know you're a fishing fanatic when that's your sack dance in the NFL. Detroit Lions defensive end Willie Young put his creative celebration on display during last year's Monday Night game against the Chicago Bears. After throwing quarterback Jay Cutler to the ground, Young went into a fly-fishing routine that ended with him pretending to reel...

Lions need to lock down Louis Delmas

Hustle, energy, non-stop — those words perfectly describe Detroit Lions safety Louis Delmas. Delmas, a former Western Michigan star, can’t be missed on the field. He’s flying, tackling, tipping passes, drilling receivers and giving quarterbacks fits in coverage. There is almost nothing he can’t do, really. “This is the guy,” Lions defensive backs coach Tim [...]

Lawless Lions? Fairley reportedly arrested again

If the message is being delivered, it isn't getting across. Another Detroit Lions player is in trouble with the law during this offseason of seemingly endless issues. The latest is defensive tackle Nick Fairley. Less than two months after being arrested on charges of marijuana possession in Mobile, Ala., Fairley was arrested again Sunday around 1 a.m. on charges of driving...

High expectations all around for 2012 Lions

ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- A year after finishing 10-6, the Detroit Lions' season-win total for 2012 has been set at 9 12 by Las Vegas sports books. In other words, take the "over" if you think they're going to win 10 or more; the "under" if you think they'll win nine or fewer. For a little historical perspective, consider that never in club history have...

Cliff Avril, Lions far apart in negotiations

The Lions slapped defensive end Cliff Avril with the franchise tender earlier this offseason. However, he has yet to sign the 10.605 million dollar tender. He and the Lions are in negotiations, but reportedly are not close. Avril wants to make that franchise tender amount for 4-5 seasons, according to NFL.com’s Albert Breer, who says Avril is shooting for 42 million over 4 years...

When Lions go fishing

ALLEN PARK, Mich. - You know you're a fishing fanatic when that's your sack dance in the NFL. Detroit Lions defensive end Willie Young put his creative celebration on display during last year's Monday Night game against the Chicago Bears. After throwing quarterback Jay Cutler to the ground, Young went into a fly-fishing routine that ended with him pretending to reel...

Avril wants Lions to show him the money, but it’s not that easy

It was rumored that the Detroit Lions entertained the thought of dealing defensive end Cliff Avril during the 2012 NFL Draft. He would have likely been a valuable trading tool, too. And it’s safe to say that Avril’s pursuit of a financially-advantageous deal had something to do with those discussions. However, if the 6-foot-3, 252-pound [...]

Lions OT Jason Fox is a fan-friendly guy, but terrible at H-O-R-S-E

Jason Fox got incredibly lucky Wednesday. It was the type of luck that’s almost unheard of, honestly. The Detroit Lions offensive tackle may be a great football player, but he narrowly — and I mean narrowly — escaped defeat in a game of H-O-R-S-E prior to a Lions charity basketball game at Flint Southwestern Academy [...]

Lions Nick Fairley arrested Again

Nick Fairley was arrested again, this time for getting a DUI and alluding capture by the cops. Detroit Lions defensive tackle Nick Fairley was arrested again last night for DUI and charges of alluding arrest according to the following post on twitter: Homer blogger criticized me for being harsh on Lions.

Detroit Lions arrest issues continue

The Detroit Lions have endured a chaotic offseason with three players being arrested, but a player which figures to be a key player in the 2012 regular season has now suffered his second arrest this offseason. DT Nick Fairley was arrested early Sunday morning under charges of attempting to elude police officers and driving under the influence. According to Fox10tv.com out of Mobile...

Nick Fairley arrested for DUI and eluding the police

The knock on Lions’ defensive tackle Nick Fairley during the draft was that he often showed a lack of hustle. Apparently he saves his energy for the fuzz. Fairley was arrested in Mobile shortly after 1 a.m. Sunday morning for DUI, eluding the police, and reckless driving. It was less than two months ago on April 3 that he was arrested for marijuana possession, so it looks like...
