Lions Cut K. Jones, K. Edwards
The Detroit Lions released tailback Kevin Jones and defensive end Kalimba Edwards.
Edwards had three sacks in eight games this past season and 26 sacks in six seasons with the Lions.
Jones, a former first-round draft choice out of Virginia Tech, ran for 3,067 yards in four seasons in Detroit.
"As I've said all along, we will always make decisions that we believe are in the best interest of our entire football team," Lions Coach Rod Marinelli said in a written statement. "As the offseason has evolved from our postseason roster evaluation to the combine to the free agency period, we feel we've made several moves to improve our team. With the offseason program beginning next week and with our draft preparation intensifying, we decided this was the right time to make these two roster moves."
