The Detroit Lions have cut running back Kevin Jones and defensive end Kalimba Edwards.
The 5-foot-11, 228-pound Jones missed the start and the end of last season with foot and knee injuries. He has played four pro seasons, all with Detroit.
Jones has 750 career carries for 3,067 yards and 24 touchdowns. He also caught 141 passes for 1,006 yards and three touchdowns.
The 6-6, 265-pound Edwards has spent his six NFL seasons with the Lions. He has 26 career sacks.



Jones is a surprise.

I wouldn't mind taking a run at Edwards.
Especially since it's starting to look like we'll end up with Ellis with the 5th overall pick.
Can you imagine? Three competent pass-rushers with a real presence inside? Sheeesh...

Kalimba wouldn't be a bad 4th DE/rotational player.

I'll agree with you, I think he would be a solid pass rushing addition.

The DE Edwards needs a look. Playing in Detriot bound to screw your stats.

Hell of a lot better than Wilkerson, anyway.

Kalimba Edwards is one guy I think we should look at and use sparingly, like you're all saying. Basically - "I have nothing to add."
