NFL Draft Diamonds:
The Detroit Lions are not playing around. They are cutting draft picks left and right. Bot a good sign for the scouting department members. @davebirkett: #Lions parted ways with rookie 7th-round pick Brandon Hepburn. Another PS candidate. That’s 2 of this year’s 9 draft picks. Corey Fuller was also released who was a fifth rounder […]
BEST OF MAXIM
Matt Willis didn’t make the cut. Kris Durham did. Patrick Edwards did. Michael Spurlock, too. Detroit Lions’ GM Martin Mayhew, head coach Jim Schwartz and the pertinent parts of the Detroit Lions’ coaching staff obviously had their reasons for keeping Durham and Edwards over Willis, but many fans will want to know why the decisions fell the way they did.
It has appeared as...
Detroit Lions quarterback Mathew Stafford is doing alright. The man recently signed a nice contract extension. He has one of the best wide receivers in the game to throw to. He might actually have a running game for a change in Reggie Bush.

One day after it appeared that Rocky McIntosh had made the Detroit Lions season-opening 53-man roster, the veteran linebacker got released.
The Lions made the move Sunday in order to create a roster spot for 6-foot, 208-pound safety DeJon Gomes, who was reportedly claimed off waivers. The Lions are waiting until after Gomes passes a physical to officially announce the transaction...
Four recent draft picks were among the final cuts Saturday as the Detroit Lions trimmed their roster from 75 to 53 going into the first week of the regular season.
Heres the recap of what went down:
Cornerback Chris Greenwood, a fifth-round pick last year out of Albion College, was one of the casualties. Greenwood hasnt gotten much practice time to develop because he was hampered...
Bummer. Remember Norwegian Kicker and YouTube sensation Harvard Rugland? OK, I don't recall the name either, but I do remember his YouTube video, Kickalicious making the rounds last winter:
I'm pretty sure that's the Dropkick Murphys playing in the background (nice "kick" choice, Harvard).
Well, unfortunately, the Detroit Lions cut Rugland on Tuesday...
