Lions release RB Paul Perkins

Jay on the Island : 10/17/2019 7:30 pm
Running back Tra Carson lost his spot on the Packers roster when the team signed wide receiver Ryan Grant on Wednesday, but he wonít be leaving the NFC North.

The Lions announced on Thursday that they have claimed Carson off of waivers. Running back Paul Perkins was dropped from the roster in a corresponding move. Perkins appeared in one game for the Lions after being claimed off of waivers from the Giants in September.

I'd put him on the practice squad over

Hilliman if he doesn't get any better offers.
But wait...

I don't think he's eligible for the PS.
I would like to add  
Jay on the Island : 10/17/2019 7:47 pm : link
that I would rather have a backup punter on the PS over Hilliman.

why didnt the Giants put a claim in on him?
Paul is  
broadbandz : 10/17/2019 8:02 pm : link
a nfl RB, mistake to ever cut him. But I like Buc as well.
I am intrigued by Buck Allen  
Jay on the Island : 10/17/2019 8:05 pm : link
and I would rather give him a shot instead of bringing back Perkins.
LOL..  
FatMan in Charlotte : 10/17/2019 8:25 pm : link
He was just cited as an example of a "good" player we let go.

Was on the Lions roster.

Didn't play a snap
He would have made all the difference in the Pats game

Yeah but he was active one game lol
Perkins yes he is  
XBRONX : 10/17/2019 8:47 pm : link
a RB,not a very good one.
I donít see the problem of bringing him in  
Jimmy Googs : 10/17/2019 8:49 pm : link
if Gallman isnít ready to go.

Whatís your problem?
how many RBs doe they have like4  
Big_N : 10/17/2019 9:02 pm : link
how many did we have like none ? I guess running with Penny a FB and the practice squad back is a better idea :/
Like I said 3 weeks ago  
FranknWeezer : 10/17/2019 10:22 pm : link
Stubborn Gettleman should have brought him back with a swap of 7ís. Judging by this transaction, Detroit would have gone for that.

Why in the world do you think that makes sense?

The Lions had 3 other RBs and 1 FB that were all with the team from the start of the season before they added on Perkins. By comparison, the Giants were highly negligent with stocking that position on the roster to prepare for potential injuries.

Perkins was never going to get any real playing time there unless there was an emergency. Seems like they signed an ex Packers player to replace him just as a luxury, and perhaps to contribute to special teams.
He could have been useful to have the last two weeks  
Blue Dream : 10/18/2019 12:24 am : link
But if Gallman and Barkley are back he serves no purpose
you need a 3rd back  
Big_N : 10/18/2019 3:49 am : link
I don't know why everyone is hating on Perkins. I remember even dj ware having some good runs as a 3rd string back.there's something about a 3rd back maybe a fresh pair of legs late in a game or that no defenses think you are really going to run with him that always makes them good to have. o yea not to mention not having to use your practce squad ,,,,
Gettlemen sucks  
Big_N : 10/18/2019 3:56 am : link
it's obvious he is either getting rid of everyone reese had and just putting rookies in and/or giving the team his stamp. Great, too bad this defense if full of rookies and jags & totally sucks ... the only time they looked decent was last week .... don't let that fool you I could have coached them that night. It was only because it was the Patriots and a bunch of jags wanted to see what they could do against them. Don't surprised if the mail it in against the cards sunday.

Um we have buck Allen
I like the Buck Allen signing.  
Brown Recluse : 10/18/2019 9:47 am : link
You all are sitting at your computer all day. Maybe google him and learn about him. He is a better back than Perkins.

Patricia seems to have a thing for Reese's rejects, should hire him as GM.

OK i just did his stats are like Perkins ; he was mid drafter ; he was on IR having missed a season ; he is a good receiving back ; nothing great ; same as perkins. Why not just keep Perkins?
The problem with Perkins  
gidiefor : Mod : 10/19/2019 10:09 am : link
is that he gets hit he goes down -- generally right at the line of scrimmage

Weíve already seen what Perkins can do. Time to try a new back.
The ironic..  
FatMan in Charlotte : 10/19/2019 8:56 pm : link
thing about Perkins is that some of the people on this thread and others saying we should sign Perkins are the same ones complaining about having Hilliman on the practice squad because "we know what we have".

Like we don't know with Perkins?

Perfect. Even better, some wanted us to trade to get him back.
