Lions release 'Kickalicious'; Akers to replace Hanson

Havard Rugland, affectionately known as “Kickalicious,” created a cult following with his YouTube trick-kick video and bid to make the Detroit Lions’ roster as a replacement for the retired Jason Hanson.

Rugland displayed a strong leg and was impressive throughout training camp, but he couldn’t compete with David Akers’ 15 years of NFL experience.

Kickalicious was released Tuesday by the Lions, several hours before the club was required to trim its roster down to 75 with one preseason game remaining.

The left-footed Norwegian was loved by his teammates and performed well, making all three field-goal attempts in preseason games. He even drilled 49- and 50-yarders in the exhibition opener, the first time the soccer player had ever appeared in a football game anywhere.

So Akers has had 2 bad years in the last 5, so he's on target to have a great year.  However, they had a young guy who was bootin' the ball and he's got youth on his side.  I hope this kid signs on somewhere and makes a fool of the Lions' front office.
