NFL Roster Cuts: Lions Release DeDe Dorsey

The running back position for the Lions provided one of the most interesting battles to watch this preseason. Jahvid Best is really the only true lock, leaving the others to battle for either two or three additional spots. It remains to be seen just how many backs the Lions will keep, but it seems one player already has been let go based on this tweet from DeDe Dorsey: was fun Detroit...

Dorsey had an exceptional preseason, so this move was all about a lack of room at the position rather than him not playing well. I'd bet Dorsey lands somewhere, as he showed a lot of promise during training camp and the preseason.
