Detroit Lions Part Ways With Montell Owens

As I had expected a few weeks ago when it was noticed that his locker was missing, Montell Owens has been released from the Detroit Lions.  He was on the IR list with an injury and likely was let go to save money for a few more signings.  With the injury to Joseph Fauria and the expectation that Kellen Davis will be back, it is likely that Detroit wants the extra money saved from releasing Owens to sign Davis, or at very least, to have it in case another injury occurs.  Nick Fairley’s status is still up in the air so he could end up on IR as well at some point.
