The Majors Detroit:
According to CBS Sports, Aaron Berry’s latest arrest for brandishing a handgun over the weekend troubled Lions’ veteran players who became fed up with the team’s deteriorating reputation.
CBSSports.com’s Mike Freeman reports that “Lions brass consulted some veteran players in Lions locker room” about the decision to dump Berry. Lions players are, apparently, quite fed up with the way the team looks to the public.
“This s— has to stop,” one Lions player told CBSSports.com. “We’re becoming the laughing stock of not only the NFL but all of sports.”
Even though short term the Lions secondary may be hurt, it’s a good sign that the veterans are starting to have an active voice in the locker room. Hopefully this continues to lead to more accountability not only off the field but on the field as well.

Many have speculated about the future of Aaron Berry with the Detroit Lions following his 2nd arrest of the offseason this past weekend, and the Lions have made their move, cutting the troubled cornerback due to personal conduct.

I’ve written all offseason about the knuckleheaded, entitled and invincible attitude of NFL players during their time off. It seems every day there is a new report about a player being arrested and what, if any, discipline the league will bring down upon them. In the case of cornerback Aaron Berry, it can’t be worse than what the Lions did to him.
Apparently fed up with Berry’s...

Here we go again, the season can’t get here soon enough. Roger Godell will need to restructure the off-season to give the players less free time. It seems that the NFL players these days have too much free time on their hands. This has been the theme of the 2012 pre-season and this...
Aaron Berry was cut from the Lions today for breaking the golden rule–a man’s talent must outweigh his foolishness. Berry was popped for simple assault but drug abuse offenses are far more common than violent ones. Berry received his own DUI charge last month.
In a show of something akin to transparency the NFL has released a list of NFL players arrested thus far in 2012. I have...

The Detroit Lions have cut cornerback Aaron Berry, two days after he was arrested for the second time this offseason.
