Lions Release Grady Jackson

Just a day after releasing veteran cornerback Phillip Buchanon, the Lions have announced that defensive tackle Grady Jackson has also been released. Jackson was signed almost exactly a year ago and started 13 games in 2009.  He appeared in 15 of the Lions' 16 games and had 32 tackles and no sacks.

Considering the team just traded for Corey Williams, this move isn't a very big surprise.  The Lions like what they have in the young Sammie Hill, and it looks like Williams was definitely brought in to be a starter.  Obviously we will have to wait and see what happens in the draft, but I think somebody like Ndamukong Suh would be a great fit in a rotation with Williams and Hill.
