The Lions have had a terrible off season with multiple player arrests. Hopefully this move will send a message to other players.
Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press said after discussions today, the team made the decision to release the troubled cornerback.
Berry was arrested this weekend on three charges of simple assault, which marked the seventh arrest this offseason (including Berry’s second, after an earlier drunk driving charge) for the Lions.
They issued the perfunctory “extremely disappointed” statement yesterday, and backed it up with actions today.
