What do you guys think of us releasing Jerome Felton this year? He says if he doesnt get more touches that he wants out anyways.
IMO Felton has never been very productive here in Detroit, and releasing him will just free up some Salary Space for our FA signings this year. Being a FullBack in the NFL means that you are a lead blocker first, then a ball carrier. I think that half of our struggles on 3rd and 1 have been due to him not being able to push the pile, while the other half was that we just havent had a big and powerful back.
This young Henry Hynowski kid is UDFA. I have seen several of you comment about this guy before the draft so lets take a look at him now:

The dude is a brick wall and very athletic. He is young and seems to understand his role as a FB. I bet he wont complain about playing time with us. I hope we dont resign Felton and sign this young kid off of UDFA. With him lead blocking for Leshoure, we stand a great chance and converting them pesky 3rd and 1's. What do you all think?
