Vikings Release Cornerback Jacob Lacey

Veteran cornerback and 1st year Viking Jacob Lacey has been released. The cornerback was signed to compete for the nickleback position and was seen as a pretty solid signing in FA. This will be good news for corners on the bubble like Bobby Felder and Marcus Sherels. Lacey never really got a fair shot by being sidelined with an injury early in his Viking career. Once healthy it could...

Vikings vets lobbying for 'shells' in final training camp week

MANKATO, Minn. -- Monday presented another full-padded practice on a picturesque day at Minnesota State University, continuing the training-camp long trend of mild weather.

Jacob Lacey Out 2-4 Weeks, Roster Spot in Jeopardy

Free agent cornerback Jacob Lacey will have his knee scoped this week which will most likely put him out for 2-4 weeks and pretty much killing his entire preseason. With Lacey already on the bubble and fighting for a spot with corners like AJ Jefferson, Brandon Burton, and Bobby Felder, this could make the Vikings decision much easier. Lacey was most likely going to be looked at...

NFL Free Agency: Top Cornerbacks Still Available

With almost two weeks of free agency in the books and most of the big names off the board, now is the time where a shrewd general manager really fills in his team; the bargain signing. With the market set and plenty of proven guys taking one year “prove it” deals, the board will begin to thin out soon. But there are still plenty of bargains out there at all positions. We’re...

Lions-Cardinals Preview

The Detroit Lions' latest loss included a dubious feat, but even their recent woes don't seem to compare to those of their next opponent. While the Lions attempt to snap a five-game skid Sunday, the Arizona Cardinals seek to avoid matching the franchise's longest single-season losing streak and bounce back from one of the most lopsided defeats in NFL history.

Detroit Lions: Week 11 NFL Power Rankings (#19)

Last week: 19 (-3) Record: 4-5 Every year one team goes from the playoffs to 5 wins or fewer. However, this year, 9 games in, all 12 of last year’s playoff teams have at least 4 wins. That means either this won’t happen this year (only one time in the past decade it didn’t happen) or either the Bengals, Lions, or Saints will go 1-6 in their final 7 games. I think the Bengals...

The Detroit Lions Lost, What Is The Positive Side?

If a win is a win, even a ugly in like the Detroit Lions had in week one, than a loss is a loss even when it is to a team that looks as good as the San Francisco 49ers. That is all fine and good, but in week two we here at DJC see way too much positive to give up on the Lions this soon. Even though there will be some in the fan base who feel that way after a loss on prime time TV...
