The Detroit Lions have certainly had their share of failures over the decades since 1957, especially in recent years. With that, comes a whole slew of busts.

What is a bust?

Usually, a bust is a player that is drafted high and performs far below expectations. However, for the sake of this slideshow, I am also including big free-agent acquisitions that performed below expectations as busts.

The kicker and punter positions are vacant because as we know, if the Lions have done anything right, its special teams.

Here are the biggest Detroit Lions' busts of the last 10 seasons—there are enough to make an entire team!

Ah, memories. Enjoy.
