  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.
