This morning the Detroit Lions announced they released eight players. Among the players are: WR’s Damario Ballard, Marcus Harris, and RB Mike Bell, who was signed when Mikel Leshoure tore his Achilles. K Dave Rayner was also released which means Jason Hanson is completely healthy and will be the week 1 kicker. The others who were released are TE Richard Dickson (waived/injured), LB DeJuan Fulghum, DB Michael Johnson and DT Montavious Stanley. The Lions have to be down to 80 players by 4pm. They have 82 players after these cuts.

    IMO keeping Hanson is a mistake, hes 40 been hurt the last 2 yrs was associated with the worst team in history & Rainer was on the team that won 4 in a row. they need to look to the future.
