    The Detroit Lions released cornerback Chris Houston on Friday, the team announced.

    Houston struggled last year and underwent offseason surgery to fix a toe injury.

    “Chris Houston underwent a significant medical procedure this spring,” the Lions said in a statement. “Both parties felt that the best course of action at this time is to release Chris and allow him to rehabilitate his injury away from the Club.

    "The Lions appreciate Chris' contributions over the years and wish him the best in his recovery.”

    The Lions signed Houston to a five-year, $25-million deal last spring, but he stumbled in 2013. Pro Football Focus rated Houston 96th among corners last season.

    Wow. Figured this was a possibility but didn't think it would be this early. Hopefully Slay and Vaughn/Greenwood can step it up. Granted the shoes to fill aren't that big considering how bad he was last year. I trust that Austin can figure it out though.

    Credit Jeff Risdon who writes for Bleacher Report and detroitlionsdraft.com. He's been calling that this was going to happen basically offseason.

    Yea to be fair to that argument it wasent to save money this year and thats what the whole argument started over.. He got cut because of the injury, Which seems weird that a toe injury is that big of a deal...

    We do save 2.2 this year because it happened after june 1st but now he counts 2.6m against the cap next year too

    5.2m.. 2.6 this year and 2.6 next, His cap hit was 4.8 so we actually save 2.2 for this year but lose 2.6 next year.. It works that way because after june 1st all cuts are spread over a two year span
