  • Long-time Lions K Jason Hanson hangs 'em up

    Free agent K Jason Hanson announced his retirement.
    Hanson, 42, spent all 21 seasons of his career with the Lions. He had an 82.4 percent success rate over that time, connecting on 55.9 percent of his kicks from 50-plus yards out. Hanson cites a foot injury as the main reason he is finally hanging up the cleats, and the Lions' unwillingness to offer much more than the veteran's minimum to bring him back for a 22nd season likely also contributed to his decision. Detroit is now looking for a new punter and kicker.
