Lions notes: Wrapping up the final round of cuts

Lions notes looks at various pieces of news from the final round of cuts, average age rankings for the 2014 season and much more. The Detroit Lions officially parted ways with DeJon Gomes last week by releasing him from injured reserve with an injury settlement. Mikel Leshoure is currently a free agent after being released on Saturday, and he actually has a tattoo of the Lions' logo on his left arm. This could be somewhat awkward should he get an opportunity with another team, but Leshoure doesn't regret getting the tattoo. @PrideOfDetroit Asked him about it, said he'd never regret it...

Evaluating the Lions' roster cuts: Offense

Here's a closer look at the offensive players who were cut by the Detroit Lions on Saturday. The Detroit Lions released 22 players on Saturday to get their roster down to the 53-man limit. Here's a look at the 12 offensive players who were let go: RB Mikel Leshoure - It's a shame that Leshoure's time in Detroit has come to an end, but this was an obvious decision.

Detroit Lions — With Mikel Leshoure gone, only Nick Fairley remains from 2011 draft

Detroit Lions running back Mikel Leshoure was waived today, according to multiple reports. Leshoure was given plenty of chances in training camp and the preseason, but obviously it didn't work. That leaves only Nick Fairley still on the roster from the 2011 Lions’ draft. They used to say it takes five years to adequately judge a team’s draft class, but I think we can jump the gun on this one. Miserable, lousy, disastrous — pick one. Let’s recap: — Fairley was the 13th overall pick. He has not lived up to that designation. He’s just been too inconsistent. So much so...
