The Detroit Lions trimmed their roster to the necessary 53 man limit yesterday, and one eye-opening result was that both kickers were noticeably absent from the final list. Both Randy Bulluck and Zane Gonzalez were released after struggling during training camp.
So what is Detroit’s plan moving forward?
“We’re going to go for two a lot,” Campbell said on the “Tiki and Tierney” show on CBS Sports Radio. “No, look it’s a good question. We’ve got our eyes on a couple of guys and we’ll see where this thing goes. Until we know exactly what we’re going to do, I’m just going to reserve that right now. We had a competition and we’re going to wait and see where this thing plays out at.”
Of course, as his responsibilities as head coach include, Campbell did what he feels is in the best interest of the long-term success of the team he’s now in charge of.
“That’s what this whole process has been about us, trying to find the right guys for us and what we’re trying to do. A bunch of tough, hard-nosed, resilient, smart, accountable guys who are accountable to one another – because ultimately you want a group of guys at the end of the day that give you a chance to compete. That’s all you can ask for.”
