Lucas nixes deal to Detroit; could be cut

The NFL’s trading deadline begins Friday, though talks already have been in high gear.

The Panthers tried trading cornerback Ken Lucas to the Detroit Lions. Problem is, once the two sides were engaged in discussions, Lucas let it be known that he did not and would not play in Detroit. Thus, trade talks were abandoned even though some in the league thought the trade might go through.

The talks are an indication of what Carolina has in mind for Lucas, who is scheduled to make $5.6 million in base salary this season. If Carolina cuts Lucas this week, it will free up $2.375 million against its salary cap. For a team desperately searching for space, Lucas provides some of it.

Good. I'd like for him to be traded, but sending him to Detroit would be awful. "Thanks so much for everything you've done for this team; for how you handled that whole clocked-by-a-teammate situation. In return, we've traded you to the worst team in NFL history."

Yes that would be pretty freaking slack of 'em.

He must have threatened sitting out or retiring because unlike Peppers he has no say in who he is traded to. And I agree that you can't blame him for not wanting to go to Detriot.

Sending him to Detroit at the moment would be the same as cutting him and slapping him across the face.

Yea, theres no reason to send a vet that has helped us to such a bad team. At least look for a playoff contender in the afc, I mean I'm sure he wants a chance to get a ring.

I talked to Ken Lucas after the Denver game and told him to take the first trade the Panthers put in front of him. Needless to say, I am disappointed that he ignored my advice.

Would you sign with Detroit on the end stretch of your career? Ken has done more for us than that.

Nothing personal, it's just business.
