Lions follow Eagles' suit, release six players
It appears that Detroit Lions have followed suit and start trimming their roster as the deadline to cut the team down to 75 looms.
The Detroit Lions have released six players, just 24 hours after they beat the Jacksonville Jaguars by a single point. Clearly, these players didn't match the coaches expectations on the field.
