On Monday, the Detroit Lions announced a move that surprised quite a few people when released starting safety, Jayron Kearse.
Many speculated that the move was made to get some of the younger guys more playing time, but some suggested there had to be more to the story.
Well, according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press, there absolutely is more to the story as Kearse was reportedly released after he violated team rules.
From Detroit Free Press:
Kearse committed a violation of team rules before the Lions’ loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last week when he left the team hotel without permission and was late for bed check, multiple sources told the Free Press.
Kearse, who was a late addition to last week’s injury report, did not play against the Buccaneers because of those transgressions, and likely would have been inactive again Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings.
Nation, did the Lions make the correct decision by releasing Kearse?
