    wow. big news. definitely going RB in the first now. i mean Bell was only signed for a year right?? that doesn't scream franchise RB. and with the top 3 all being really friggin' good, they got to grab one of them.


    Silverback....still the best.

    +rep to Jakey for the sig

      Wow so they lost him and duckett? Now everyone's mock draft has them taking a RB first. maybe even a trade to mcfadden. that'd be smart considering they deal with AD twice a year.

        HA! I KNEW it!!!

        Lions fans have been overrating Jones for years. He's a marginal starting back at best, and that's when he's healthy. I am suprised they cut him, but they were going to address the starting spot in this draft anyway. Hello Mendenhall or J-Stew.

          In a surprising move, the Lions cut Kevin Jones today.

            We've been talking about this in the Lions team forum for a little bit. Here is what I said there:

He was going to be a free agent after this season any way and had little to no trade value. Although, this probably means we are going to draft a Running Back in the 1st round.

              good for the lions. The guy was never healthy and never got back to his rookie year form. He cant still turn his career around, but no the lions dont have to feel tied to him and they can get Mendenhall or Stewart.

              Maybe seattle can get him

                I would love to see him in Green Bay and running in a ZBS, isn't that what he was running in college?

                What teams could make an offer to him?

                  He is a player I like. Not overly shifty but good speed and toughness inside the tackles, and he catches the ball really well.

                    I agree RB 1st round big cut for them.

                      I would love him to rotate with Barber, I wanted him instead of Julius that year anyway, and he has a good combination of strength and speed to add receiving skills, this is probably even worse news for Shaun Alexander who will miss out on another opportunity...


                      wouldnt be surprised to see alot of teams interested in KJ, the Titans are one team who comes to mind.

                        You just completely described Cedric Benson to a T.

                        You're team should be looking for a running back as well.

                          Did he ever mention Benson or the Bears running back situation in the post? Didn't think so. Also, you're name is pretty incorrect. The sign goes the other way.

                          Come back when you have something to offer.

                            What do they have for running backs other than Tatum Bell now?

                              Any real football fan would know that what the Bears really need to be looking for first is a new offensive line.
