The Lions drafted three offensive linemen including first-round tackle Taylor Decker, which cut down on the space available for some other players vying for roster spots this offseason.

One of those players was dropped from the roster altogether on Friday. The Lions announced that they have released tackleLamar Holmes.

The Lions signed Holmes in February, a couple of months after he was released from the PUP list by the Falcons with an injury settlement. Holmes, a 2012 third-round pick, started 19 games over the 2013 and 2014 seasons before a broken foot sent him to injured reserve and further issues with the foot led to his stay on the PUP list last year.

Undrafted free agent defensive lineman Louis Palmer fills the vacated roster spot in Detroit. Palmer played 48 games at Central Michigan over the last four years.

Example of some physical traits but no mental drive to improve.  He flashed talent when he wasn't out of breath, but stamina is his fault.

Even as a 3D round pick he was disappointing. 

No dude...they will say he wasn't developed by smitty, thats why the lions cut him

He actually played ok at LT at times, but he did get winded to easy. He actually looked ok at RT before the injury took him down. I never could get him, showed potential at times and struggled some. That said, NO, i do not want him back. Leave him at home or where ever he lands TD!

Been there done that, got the dead money to prove it.
