Post "Updated" Roster from ESPN
Here's the "updated" Lions' roster from ESPN. It's got all of our FA signings, including our RFAs who we haven't signed yet.

But I question it because it still has Sherm listed as OC and Olandis Gary is still on it. I remember us cutting him last September?

Also, is Mike Echols worth half a crap? I've never seen him play, is he only a practice squad guy or does he have a shot at playing package sets?

Since we have 6 OGs on the roster, will anyone get released? Sean Bubin, Tyrone Hopson, Joyce, Loverne, Woody, and DeMulling. Joyce is near 33, why not release him and save some money? Sean Bubin, never seen him play - any thoughts?

I'd discourage releasing Joyce or Loverne simply because the Lions inevitably face a handful of injuries on the Oline and these are the two guys most capable of spot starting and patching holes. Older Olinemen are almost ideal for depth because they have experience and probably some wisdom about how to assimilate quickly into the unit.

It does seem like 6 OGs is a bit excessive, but considering we wouldn't exactly be clearing much extra cap-space by cutting Joyce or Loverne (as opposed to Bubin or Hopson), we ought to keep them and cut one of the young 'uns.

That's my incredibly-unqualified thought/opinion on the matter....

Somehow landing the Ndamo-nator would be the second best day ever.

My guess is that some of those guys are practice squad fodder.

We've also got that covered:

This tracks the current roster and the status of the Lions free agents.

You can also check the depth chart:

Both of them stay pretty updated... 8)
