ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) -The Detroit Lions released former Pro Bowl return specialist Eddie Drummond on Thursday.
Drummond was named to the Pro Bowl after the 2004 season when he became the second player in NFL history to return two kickoffs and two punts for touchdowns in the same season. He made the trip to Hawaii, despite missing the last five games with a broken shoulder blade.
The move was announced hours after the team ended its practice session. No one from the team was available for comment.
Drummond ranked seventh in the league with a career-best 1,349 kickoff return yards, but was not used in offensive coordinator Mike Martz's scheme.
