Detroit Lions waive Taylor Mays, Jarred Haggins and Sign TE Deon Butler


Detroit Lions waive veteran S Taylor Mays after he did not play in the Washington game. Mays has proven two things; He is not an NFL safety nor a team player hence his ticket out of Detroit.

Here is a tribute:

Mays did not make it to the first cut.

Lions waive UDFA WR Jarred Haggins. He was a rookie out of FSU. Haggins did not start at FSU and was a long shot in the NFL.

Here is a tribute:

Scenes from the Roar Zone Lions vs. Jets


Lions defeat the Jets 23-3 in the preseason opener at Ford Field. Went down early and my son and I got autographs from Darius Slay, Eric Ebron, Haloti Ngata, LaAdrian Waddle and Jason Jones. Was able to sit in the 1st quarter with the families of the players. Talked to the girlfriend of Isaiah Johnson. Made our way up to the Family fun zone where my brother in law was kicked out for drinking a beer.

Observations:

Ameer Abdullah= Real Deal
Theo Riddick looks like an improved runner.
Run defense looks like it is in trouble. Jets went right the field with Chris Ivory.
Lions receivers looked good. Moore, Jones and Salas making claims on spots.
Better play from the slot CB. Josh Wilson is better than the guys we had there in recent years.

Detroit Lions claim DT Jerel Worthy and sign CB Ethan Davis, waive LB Jerrell Harris


Detroit Lions claimed veteran DT from the Chiefs. He psent 2014 on the practice squad. This is a reach to get anything out of Worthy. At MSU, Worthy showed the NFL ability but it never panned out at Green Bay.

At MSU 40 games
107 tackles 12 sacks

Worthy at Camp
Lions sign UDFA CB Ethan Davis out of Troy. He has worked for Detroit a couple times and must have impressed him. He is 5'10" 188 lbs ran a poor 4.75 40 22 reps 31 VJ 1003 broad 4.35 20 7.91 cone. These numbers are not good for a corner. He is a long shot.
