  Lions | Dre' Bly, 20 others released    Sat Sep 4, 08:15 PM

The Detroit Lions have waived/injured DE Korey Bosworth (leg), and released CB Dre' Bly, DT Robert Callaway, LB Caleb Campbell, LB Vinny Ciurciu, WR Brian Clark, DT Landon Cohen, RB DeDe Dorsey, G Noah Franklin, C Dan Gerberry, PK Steven Hauschka, CB Jonathan Hefney, OT Jon Jansen, CB Eric King, T Cliff Louis, WR Mike Moore, CB Paul Pratt, CB T.J. Rushing, S Ko Simpson, WR Tim Toone and CB Dante Wesley.

Footballguys view: Mr. Irrelevant Tim Toone was unable to make this team as a return man, but he still has some of the best hair in the game. Adding Alphonso Smith in a trade with the Denver Broncos made veteran Dre Bly expendable.

  Broncos | Bly felt he was scapegoat     Mon Jul 6, 11:13 AM

Tom Robinson, of The Virginian-Pilot, reports San Francisco 49ers CB Dre' Bly said he was blamed for the struggles his former team, the Denver Broncos, had on defense last season. 'I was made the scapegoat,' Bly said. 'Especially on the other side of Champ (Bailey), you're gonna take (criticism). But I don't care who you are, if you don't have a pass rush and you're not aggressive on defense, they're gonna catch a ball ... We weren't aggressive last year in Denver. We let people take the fight to us. We were so predictable on defense. I don't make no excuses; none of us played well in the system ... People are going to question my ability, saying I'm not this, I'm not that, that's fine. I use all that for motivation.'

Footballguys view: Dre Bly hasn't been the same player for years, and Broncos fans who thought they had 2 shutdown corners when Bly was signed were quickly made aware of that fact. He was not a scapegoat in Denver, he simply isn't that good anymore.
