The Detroit Lions released safety Kenoy Kennedy on Friday, adding him to the growing list of players that have left the team this offseason.
Prior to his arrival in Detroit, Kennedy spent the first five years of his NFL career in Denver after being selected by the Broncos in the second round (45th overall) of the 2000 NFL Draft out of Arkansas.
Kennedy's status with the team became a question mark when the Lions signed safety Dwight Smith last month. With the addition most recently of Kalvin Pearson, Kennedy's services were no longer needed as there was sufficient depth at the safety position. Kennedy became the odd man out and now will have to find a new team.
