At what point is this guy going to join the WWE? seriously we all know it’s coming. The Lions cut 31-year-old linebacker Stephen Tulloch last week. This caused mass chaos amongst some Lions fans for some odd reason. Of course the only logical move after losing a 31-year-old declining linebacker is to sign a 30-year-old declining linebacker.
I’ve always had the opinion that replacing cut players with cut players isn’t the wisest move. Don’t get me wrong, Animal Jr. is not the worst linebacker in the league. He’ll find work. But this is a position that was a major weakness in 2015, and its a position the Lions need to get younger and faster at. Look for this spot to be filled in the draft or by Danny Trevathan if fans are lucky enough.
