Bryant Johnson:  Why The Lions Should Release Him

I'm going to keep this post short for the simple fact that sometimes words just get in the way. I read a stat here that completely blew my mind.

Bryant Johnson has gone 9 straight games with 2 or fewer catches.

How does that happen? How does the receiver opposite Calvin Johnson have less than 18 catches over 9 games? To put that into perspective, Brandon Marshall caught 21 in one game.

This makes me wonder, with the defensive secondary catching the heat it does for lack of production, why doesn't this guy get benched for the same? It's his time to go. He is in a prime spot to revive his career and this is what he does? Bench him. Its time to move on without him. Derrick Williams has to be better than this. Eric Fowler, somebody, anybody has to be better than this. Just sit him down already and make sure he takes Dennis Northcutt with him.
