Description: The Detroit Free Press reports the Lions are interested in retaining DeVries, despite releasing him on Tuesday.
Insight: Since he is coming off of a torn Achilles' tendon that caused him to miss the entire 2009 season, DeVries is unlikely to get much more than a minimum contract. (SportsBuff.com)

Description: John Niyo of the Detroit News reports, via Twitter, that the Lions have released DeVries.
Insight: DeVries missed all of 2009 after tearing his Achilles' tendon during training camp. He will turn 34 in June and was reportedly due a roster bonus soon, two factors that may have made this an easy decision for the Lions. (SportsBuff.com)

Description: DeVries suffered a leg injury of unknown severity in practice on Monday. He was carted off the field and coach Jim Schwartz remarked that "it didn't look too good."
Insight: DeVries is the starting left defensive end for the Lions, so, obviously, his status is important to the fantasy relevance of the defense. He had 29 tackles and 2 sacks last year.(SportsBuff.com)
