Titus already signed with another team (Rams).
Well a receiver with more talent then Calvin won't be out of a job for long.... I'm shocked why it took so long.
Stafford can't afford to unfriend his neediest supporters.
Report: Rams release ex-Lions WR Titus Young after 10 days | The Detroit News | detroitnews.com
The coach tried to spin it like he wasn't a good fit...without saying he is a complete nut job.
My guess is Titass told them he needs to be targeted 10 times a game.
The fact that only one team put in a waiver claim on him and that team dropped him after a couple of days does not bode well for his future.
That's scary, and I'm not being sarcastic.
He's right on plan for one of those glamorous CFL jobs................
How did the Lions draft this nut case? Perhaps they used Matt Millen as a consultant?
DETROIT LIONS: Kicker Jason Hanson still unsure if he will return - theoaklandpress.com
He has only been a Lion for 21 years. I can't believe he's thinking of pulling a "Barry Sanders" and retiring in his prime.
Comm'on Beer that Boise team was kick ass, we even signed their QB.
He was ok his first season. now he's got a kid...
No question the dude's got talent.
While some teams use two kickers in one year, I can't remember a time that either Hanson or Murrey were not our kicker....
Just as I thought:
Park — The Lions might have picked a bad year to have the No. 5 pick. That's how NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock sees it.
"There is better depth in this draft than there's been in the last 10 years," Mayock said Monday on a national teleconference. "But in the top 10, I don't see the difference makers we've had the last couple of years."
Mayock went on to say that teams may get the same type of player with the 25th pick and they would with the 5th pick.
"A lot of teams are going to look to move down, but I am not sure there will be a whole lot of teams looking to come up," he said. "Most of the value in this draft is later."
ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr.- and other analysts have said the Lions should be able to have their pick of an impact defensive player with the fifth pick — whether it's Alabama cornerback Dee Milliner, or a pass rusher like Damontre Moore from Texas A&M, Bjoern Werner from Florida State or Dion Jordan from Oregon.
Mayock poured some cold water on that, as well.
"I have a different opinion than a lot of what I've heard on some of the 4-3 defensive ends," he said. "I am not as high on these guys as some are. I don't think Werner or Moore are top 10 players. They might go in the top 10, but I don't see it that way."
As for Milliner, Mayock has him pegged as a 20th overall pick, though that could change this week at the combine.
"(Top 5) is really high for Milliner," Mayock said. "I really like him. He's a heck of a football player. He'd be safe. But I don't think he's that explosive, 4.35 (seconds in the 40-yard dash) guy. If he runs a sub-4.5,

‘Shutdown Corner’ offseason TPS report: Detroit Lions | Shutdown Corner - Yahoo! Sports
The Combine is separating some dudes. Speed kills:Maybe you saw Zaviar Gooden run the linebacker-best 40-yard dash at 4.47. Maybe you missed it. Whatever happened, one this is for certain: this kid is legit. Although injuries hampered Gooden during his time at Missouri, he may have saved his best for the next level. He’s a bit undersized at 6-foot-1, 234 pounds, but he has keen instincts and could be a plug-and-play if a team takes a chance on him in April.
I would try him at SS !
Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports - USA TODAY SportsDon’t know much about Margus Hunt? Don’t worry, you will. At 6-foot-8, 275 pounds, Hunt has loads of potential and put plenty of his production from SMU on tape. He also was a workout warrior this weekend, running a 4.6 in the 40-yard dash, repping 225 pounds 38 times and leaping 34 ½ inches in the broad jump. He’s a late first rounder.Ezekiel Ansah arrived in Indy as a raw prospect from BYU. He left the Combine as a consensus first rounder. Ansah, who came to BYU from Ghana, admits he didn’t watch any football growing up. None of that will matter to teams as Ansah’s freakish athleticism has scouts drooling.I'd take him at 5

Stephen Jackson, Michael Turner, Reggie Bush.....who should the Lions sign?
Bush if he's still explosive
He reminds me of this former Lion
Thee...Do you remember Michael Cofer?
