NFL Roster Cuts: Lions Release Eric King

Per Chris McCosky at the Detnews.com, cornerback Eric King has been released from the Detroit Lions.

I think this will make many Lions fans happy as King had a rough preseason.  I'll be honest, I was a little surprised by this move as I thought he was set as the starting nickel corner.  My guess is that Dre' Bly will now fill that role and that the Gronkowski-Smith trade made King expendable. 

It is now past the league deadline of 6pm, so we should get the "official" list of cuts from the Lions soon.
