Jared DeVries, who missed all of 2009 with a torn Achilles tendon, has been released by the Detroit Lions. DeVries has started all of 32 games in his 11-year career. He says he could play a game right now and that he hopes to re-sign with Detroit, but Achilles injuries are often career-enders. The most interesting part of this story is this quote from DeVries: "I've been a Lion for 11 years and I'd like to finish a Lion." Why would anyone want to finish as a Lion?
