Podcast: Reacting to Kerryon Johnson’s release, Frank Ragnow’s extension

The Lions had a pretty busy week after the draft.

If you expected Lions news to slow down after the draft, you were in for a surprise.

On the latest episode of the Pride Of Detroit PODcast, we’re wrapping up quite a few things that have happened in the world of Detroit football in the past few days. First, the release of running back Kerryon Johnson has risen some concern from fans. Was the waiving necessary, and are the Lions letting go of a running back who still has some promise? Or was it a move to stir in fresh blood, especially with the drafting of Oregon State’s Jermar Jefferson?

Then, with the retirement of Josh Hill, the Lions welcome back Darren Fells to the fold. What does it mean for that position group?

Also, Frank Ragnow got extended, once more cementing the identity of the team in building through its offensive line.

Finally, we’re discussing the rumors of potential trades that were flying around on draft night, and why we disagree with each other over what it means and if any trade value was potentially lost in the decision.

All this, along with the usual banter and boisterous charm of PODcast, is now available on your favorite podcast feeds and platforms.
