Devon Kennard being released

Recommended Posts

#Lions are releasing LB Devon Kennard, source says. Bit of a surprise there. Team captain coming off back-to-back seven-sack seasons. Should have interest elsewhere.

why tho? they have to be signing reader or phillips to a big contract or somthing

If you're talking about Jordan Phillips he has already signed elsewhere.

Are they looking at Jamie Collins in that role? 

This is a bit of a head scratcher right now.

Jamie has the ability to play all line backer positions it doesn’t make sense

Yeah.. I would have looked at Collins taking over for Davis/Jones. 

They must be looking at bringing someone else in and needed the cap space.

Per Ian 

A slight plot twist: The #Lions are having conversations with teams about trading Kennard. He’ll be on the move, but it could be in a trade.

According to PFF, Kennard ranked 45th at his position. Moving him frees up $5M of cap space.

Hopefully it'll allow them to use Davis in a way that fits his skillset. (As mentioned above.)

Looks like it is official..

I really hope the plan is for JD to stay closer to the line and rush the QB. He has been bad in pass D and in his run fits.

Austin Bryant? 

Very true. Forgot about him. Sure he wil get some run. I had dreams of Davis becoming our Von Miller though.. Pipedreams probably 😊

Jarrad Davis is 6'1", 225. If he plays closer to the line we'll never hear his name called again. As an off the ball rusher he's got talent, but sadly he's a liability in other areas of being a LB.
