Detroit Lions sign S/LB Taylor Mays

Mays is tweener. Too slow and stiff to play safety and too small to play linebacker. He could play a hybrid nickel linebacker and on special teams. A guy who has to play close to line and cannot matched up with an athlete in space.

Here is a tribute:

Mays played 66 games starting 10
98 tackles 1 FF

at USC 51 games
276 tackles 5 int 26 PBU
Welcome to Detroit

Detroit Lions waive CB Dwight Bentley

Detroit Lions waive 4th year man Dwight Bentley. Another failed 3rd round CB. He follows in the foot steps of the likes of Keith Smith, Stanley Wilson and Amari Spievey . This history does not signal success this years 3rd round CB Alex Carter.

Bentley struggled with the ability to turn his toward the ball and with injury. He had shoulders injuries, concussion and a torn ACL. This leaves the nickel corner job to  Josh Wilson, Quandre Diggs, Nevin Lawson and Chris Owens.

Here is a tribute:

Bentley played in 18 games and started 8
He was credited with 44 tackles and 5 PBU

Good Luck Dwight
