We around the Detroit Lions SBNation site, PrideOfDetroit, have been discussing possible candidates to be claimed off waivers. As you know we had the worst record last season and our "prize" is first dibs on everyone cut by their team in order to whittle down the roster to 53.
Nearly everyone in the PoD community is a University of Michigan fan or have seen a good amount of their games, naturally we saw Terrance Taylor being cut and we all wanted to jump on him. Unfortunately, we've heard no news about Mayhew and Co. even discussing TT. Which led me to wonder, why did he get cut in the first place? Teams don't normally throw away their 4th rd picks away, even if it's apparent he's garbage they usually give him some time to develop. What led the Colt's to give Terrance Taylor his walking papers? What should one expect if they pick up Terrance Taylor? Couldn't the Colt's just have used him as trade bait? I mean he was a 4th rd pick that hasn't played a game yet, he comes with some potential. I recall the Colts going into the draft pretty thin at the DT position, so if someone was cut at DT, you have to figure they're pretty bad.
Thanks, any help is appreciated
