The Detroit Lions released WR Chaz Schilens, CB Domonique Johnson, OT Derek Hardman, DL John Drew, and DB Ross Weaver on Friday. With teams getting closer and closer to the regular season, we are going to start seeing a flood of activity from every team cutting their rosters.
The most notable name of the bunch was Chaz Schilens who previously held stints with the Raiders and Jets. A veteran receiver who is no better than a teams 4th WR, he has a big frame and was fast for his size coming out of San Diego State. Unfortunately, injuries while with Oakland have robbed him of some of that speed. I’m sure he will get picked up relatively quickly, that size/speed combo is still intriguing. He should not be anyones fantasy radar.
