The Detroit Lions finished the 2012 season with a 4-12 record, and ended the year on an 8-game losing streak.
This offseason, the Lions brought in a lot of talented players, including running back Reggie Bush, defensive end Jason Jones, safety Glover Quinn, defensive tackle CJ Mosley, and kickers David Akers and Havard Rugland.
To make room for these new players, Detroit had to let some talented players go as well. These players include defensive linemen Kyle Vanden Bosch, Cliff Avril and Sammie Hill, and offensive linemen Gosder Cherilus and Steven Peterman.

Given a couple days to cool down after Detroit's lackluster performance in Cleveland, Lions coach Jim Schwartz was ready to move on and focus on the few bright spots.
Getting All-Pro receiver Calvin Johnson back on the practice field and adding three veteran defensive players to the roster helped further brighten the mood on a sunny afternoon at the team's training facility...
When we think of underrated and overrated players on a football team, we tend to search for the quarterback or the player who just got the new contract after one year of stellar play. We never think of the backup guard or the third-down pass rusher. And we never think of the coach.This might be one of those articles where a case can be made for a coach hanging on too long and doing...

Even though it is just the preseason, I think it would be foolish for a team to not take Ndamukong Suh seriously any and every time he steps onto the football field. The Lions take on the Patriots this Thursday during Week 3 of the preseason and the defensive tackle is looking forward to the […]
It was another unimpressive outing for the Detroit Lions in the preseason, falling to the Cleveland Browns 24-6 in a sloppy performance.
