Lions release Reggie Bush

The Detroit Lions were the talk of the NFL in 2013 offseason when they signed unrestricted free-agent running back Reggie Bush. Most agreed that he was the perfect complement to receiver Calvin Johnson and would give the Lions' offense just what it needed -- a game-breaking threat in the backfield to replace Jahvid Best. Now, less than two years later, Bush is gone, showing just...

Gave: Suh, Raiola trample an otherwise fine Lions season

You had to like the way the Detroit Lions competed Sunday at Green Bay, strapping on their big-boy pads and playing a man's game in the toughest of all places for a visiting team to win a football game. At least until Ndamukong Suh stepped up -- and onto the leg of Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. You might even have liked the Lions chances as a wildcard road team to win a playoff...

Gave: With everything on the line, nobody better than Hasek

Now that Dominik Hasek is safely enshrined in the Hockey Hall of Fame, can we talk about his place among the all-time great goaltenders in the game? To be sure, there is a Greatest Generation of fans who watched Terry Sawchuk (No. 1 up in the rafters at Joe Louis Arena) as nearly impenetrable for those Red Wings Stanley Cup teams in the 1950s. Others might argue for Patrick Roy,...

DETROIT (AP) -- Alex Avila's $5.4 million option for 2015 has been exercised by the Detroit Tigers. Avila, who turns 28 in January, hit .218 with 11 home runs and 47 RBIs last season, although concussion problems have become a concern over the last couple years.
