Ken Lucas Rejects Trade, Kemo takes Pay Cut.

When Panthers CB Ken Lucas wasn't released in the first round of cuts, it left me surprised and wondering why they didn't want to take 2.5 million dollars off the salary cap. We've hated on Ken Lucas all year, and it appeared that he was finally going to get his just due. Then this morning, it was reported that the Lions and the Panthers had agreed to a deal to send Ken Lucas over to the Lions. However, Ken Lucas made it known that he will not and shall not play for the Detroit Lions. Without him working with the Lions for a new contract, they would be forced to work with his current deal which would force the Lions to pay 9.1 million. So the deal fell apart.

And in other news, DT Kemoeatu has agreed to lower his salary for 2009 to save room under the cap. He'll make the same amount of money, but he'll receive 1.5 million as a signing bonus that will be appropriated through 2014. What a good guy. Now if we could only put Haynesworth on the other side of him. That would be awesome.

 

((Update: Lewis did the same thing. Just go give him his props as well.))
