Lions | Kyle Vanden Bosch likely to be cap casualty

Mon, 04 Feb 2013 12:12:05 -0800

Detroit Lions DE Kyle Vanden Bosch is likely to be a salary cap casualty this offseason. OG Rob Sims is the only secure starter on the offensive line, and OT Gosder Cherilus will become a free agent.

OT Jason Fox, if he's re-signed, should see a good shot to play at tackle next season.

Lions | Not first punishment for Titus Young

Mon, 19 Nov 2012 20:10:47 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Titus Young, who was sent home from the team's facility Monday, Nov. 19, has now been sent home twice in the past six months due to his immaturity. He angered receivers coach Shawn Jefferson and the coaching staff in Week 11 late in the fourth quarter. He incorrectly lined up in the slot on a second-down play with the team down 21-20. TE Tony Scheffler was the outside receiver to his left. OT Riley Reiff looked up and yelled to Young to get into the correct position, but was ignored. Scheffler tried to get back into the slot, but Young shook him off. As a result of the confusion, OT Gosder Cherilus was whistled for a false start.

Lions | Riley Reiff must earn playing time

Thu, 26 Jul 2012 07:49:39 -0700

Detroit Lions head coach Jim Schwartz said OT Riley Reiff must earn his playing time during the course of training camp and the preseason regardless of his draft status. "He brings a lot of credentials to the table," Schwartz said. "He's smart, he's big, he's a hard worker. But where he plays and how soon he plays will depend on nothing but how he does over these 35 days of training camp, how he plays in these preseason games. It's not going to be where we drafted him, how much money he makes, his signing bonus, or the color of his t-shirt. It's going to be how he does in those practices."
