One thing you can count on with the Detroit Lions is that they are never, ever boring. Follow the latest news including injuries, roster moves and more here daily from Oakland Press beat writer Paula Pasche. Plus you'll find regular commentary about the team.


ASU LB Vontaze Burfict not a good fit for Lions, or perhaps any team

It appears there is one name we can eliminate from the Lions’ draft discussion. That’s Arizona State linebacker Vontaze Burfict who has had a horrible showing at the NFL Combine.

His official time in the 40 was 5.01.

According to Bruce Feldman of CBS Sports his interviews were lousy too.

“I’m not sure any player here sparked a worse reaction than Vontaze Burfict,” writes Bruce Feldman of CBS Sports. “I wouldn’t touch him.”

“The guy is completely out of control. There’s no way you could trust him. I can’t believe they (ASU coaching staff) didn’t cut him loose,” one scout told Feldman.

Draft analyst Mike Mayock didn’t think much of Burfict before the Combine so to some this is no surprise.

Let’s put an end to the Burfict to Detroit talk.
