Default Lions to release linebacker Dizon

Lions to release linebacker Dizon
The Detroit Lions were set to release linebacker Jordon Dizon Thursday.

The 25-year-old Dizon tallied 29 tackles and one sack in 2009, but missed all of last season after sustaining a knee injury in the preseason. Dizon was selected by the Lions in the second round of the 2008 draft.

The Lions also reached agreements with a pair of free agents Thursday -- Justin Durant and Rashied Davis.

Durant, a linebacker who played four seasons with the Jaguars, confirmed Thursday that he will sign a two-year contract with the Lions. Davis, a wide receiver who played six years for the Chicago Bears, is also headed to Detroit, according to his agent.

The 6-foot-1, 240-pound Durant started nine games last season for the Jaguars while battling injuries. The 5-foot-9, 187-pound Davis caught nine passes for 84 yards and a touchdown last season for Chicago.

Both players are unrestricted free agents. Teams can talk to veteran free agents, but can't sign them until Friday.

Loved Dizon in college, but there was no way in the world he was ever worth a 2nd. That was a Millen move I think.
