LUCAS SAYS NO THANKS TO LIONS TRADE

Posted by Mike Florio on February 26, 2009, 1:28 p.m. EST

The Carolina Panthers have tried to trade cornerback Ken Lucas to the Detroit Lions.

But, according to Adam Schefter of NFL Network, once Lucas made it known that he wants no part of playing in Detroit, the deal fell apart.

Lucas has a base salary of $5.6 million; cutting him would free up $2.375 million in cap space for the Panthers.

It’s unknown whether the Panthers tried to enlist receiver Steve Smith to “talk some sense” into Lucas.
