Lions trimming roster

The Detroit Lions are trimming back their roster before preparing to add players next week in the draft.

The team released veteran safety Kalvin Pearson today. He primarily played a special teams role for them although he started 10 times during the 2008 march to 0-and-16.

On Thursday, the Lions cut ties with veteran guard Daniel Loper. He was the starter at the beginning of last season but that didn’t last long and the team recently made a move inside by trading with Seattle to acquire veteran guard Rob Sims.
