Monday Notes: Lions Release One, Add Two

  • The Lions released middle linebacker Chris Graham on Friday and signed wide receiver Tommy Saunders, an undrafted free agent from Missouri.
  • Defensive end Jason Hunter is now a Lion.  He was released by the Packers last week and has already joined the Lions.  Hunter had the most special teams tackles on the Packers in 2007, so he could end up playing a similar role with the Lions.
  • According to Drew Rosenhaus' Twitter page, "Kevin Smith played much of last season with an injured shoulder for the Lions.  He is feeling healthy and expects to have a monster season."
  • Larry Foote thinks the Lions' practices are much different than what he experienced in Pittsburgh.  Surprisingly, the Steelers' practices were apparently more laid back.  Part of that is because a lot of swearing goes on during the Lions' practices, which apparently is also different than what Foote experienced as a Steeler.
  • Gunther Cunningham really likes Louis Delmas.
  • Zack Follett has talents both on and off the football field.
  • Grady Jackson's brother, who was charged with the first-degree murder of his girlfriend, apparently was invited to the Lions' rookie camp.  He failed the physical, though, preventing him from participating.  The Lions were willing to wait a month and give him another physical, but that obviously won't be happening now.
  • Greg Landry, the Lions' last all-pro QB, thinks Detroit should have drafted defensive players with their first-round picks.
  • Former Lions tight end Michael Gaines may end up signing with the Bears.
  • Ken Lucas, the one-time Panthers cornerback who was nearly traded to the Lions, lost out on $3.3 million by not allowing his trade to Detroit to go through.  He ended up signing with the Seahawks.
