Detroit released Chris Houston. They quite possibly have the worst CB tandem in the league. Going to be fun watching Aaron tear that defense apart.

That secondary wasn't going to get better with Houston taking reps from players that could develop into better than Houston players.


Houston was their best (though way overpaid) CB. They're PRAYING that Slay and Bentley turn into a good #1 and slot guy. If not, their CB group is going to be one of the worst in recent memory. Quinn and Ihedigbo isn't awful, but hardly something to inspire confidence.

Houston wasn't a starting caliber Corner for his career. We have 5 Corners I'd start over him in Tramon, Sam, Casey, Micah, and Davon.

At age 29, you are what you are in the NFL. If you are overpaid and old, even if you are the best player for game 1, you can bet most GMs will go younger and cheaper with thoughts that younger and cheaper will be better by game 16. You don't win in the NFL choosing immediate, certain mediocrity over possible growth.

Some teams pay Erik Walden 4.5 Million to be mediocre. Some teams draft and develop a replacement knowing the risk he could be worse but trusting his scouts and coaches to make him better than Erik Walden. That seems to be what separates long term prosperity from long term mediocrity or worse-how do you handle this situation.


Houston is the same caliber player as Tramon. Taking Hyde or house over him (assuming contacts aren't part of the equation) is foolish. If there was a decent prospect on the roster behind Houston it would be one thing, but I don't know how you can argue this hurts the Lions. Have you seen their DBs?

Cutting Houston is a huge loss. They're heavily dependent on Slay making a huge jump to be a #1 corner. Then you realize they're in a division with Brandon Marshall/Alshon, Jordy/Cobb, and Jennings/Cordarrelle (sp?). Starting Davon/Micah over Houston is setting yourself up for failure.
