Travis Fisher Cut!!

Recommended Posts

The cuts keep coming for the Lions, who released veteran cornerback Travis Fisher today.

Fisher is the third prominent player (at least in name) to be cut by the Lions this week. Tight end Michael Gaines was released on Tuesday, and quarterback Drew Henson was let go Monday.

Fisher played the last two seasons with the Lions, mostly in the nickel role, and had two interceptions. He was deemed expendable after the Lions added three new cornerbacks this offseason. Phillip Buchanon and Anthony Henry will start, with Eric King and holdover Keith Smith as the primary backups.

Fisher was due to make $1.75 million this year, more than every defensive back on the Lions roster other than Henry and Smith.

Looks like they are trying to free up as much money as possible to fix the defense. Fisher was being paid way too much to do very little. Ramzee Robinson can fill his spot and is cheap.

The fact that anyone considers Travis Fisher a prominent player on our team shows how bad we've been.

Rod Hood was cut by the Cardinals earlier this week. He wouldn't be a bad pickup to be the nickel back or even start opposite buchannon.

He's the same guy as Fisher. I was thinking Sheldon Brown.

Sheldon Brown would be ideal. Only problem is we would have to give up something along the lines of 3rd or 4th round pick to acquire him.

I think he's too old also, I'll pass.
