Recently, there were rumors that the Lions might trade for cornerback Antonio Cromartie.
They haven’t, and they reportedly won’t.
But they’ve cut one of their own one-time first-round cornerbacks, parting ways with Philip Buchanon, a league source tells us.
Buchanon signed with Detroit in 2009, after completing his contractual commitments in Tampa. But he gushed about former Bucs position coach Raheem Morris, who’s now the head coach. So a return isn’t completely out of the question.
Then again, if Morris felt the same way about Buchanon, Morris might not have let him get away last year.
