The knock on the door. The ring of the phone. The beep of the text message. Players on the bubble are on edge — waiting to hear if they will get a visit from “the Turk” letting them know their days of playing in the NFL are over — or a message saying they are safe; though in the case of the Lions, only for now as they scour the wavier to improve the bottom of the roster…
The deadline is 6:00pm, and the Lions appear to be waiting until the last moment ot announce all of their cuts. I’m writing from a dial-up connection, and I’m about to head out for a nice walk along the lake shore with Mrs. DetFan1979 and the Little Pink Lions. Feel free to post up comments here as you find out who is cut, who is picked up, etc. as we go through this frenzy the next day or so.
I do know for sure that Cundiff, Darby, and Cason were cut. Shcweigert and Standeford are rumored to be gone, but I haven’t seen anything concrete.
So as the Turk makes his rounds, cutting short NFL dreams — post them up here and we’ll see if we can make sense from the chaos.
