Lions let go of Zack Follett

At the risk of being associated with Satan, we’ll report the Detroit Lions have released linebacker Zack Follett a year after he was temporarily paralyzed with a neck injury in a game.

Follett, of course, said the devil operated through the media during a rambling online video this offseason. That was after he referred to Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford as a “china doll” because he couldn’t stay on the field.

Follett wasn’t able to participate in hitting drills in training camp because of his neck situation. Curiously, he was not waived injured. Perhaps he’ll pursue the team at some point because it’s fair to imagine he’ll find medical experts who will conclude he’s still injured.
