Lions waived K Havard Rugland and CB De'Quan Menzie.

Rugland proved more than a mere YouTube sensation. "Kickalicious" showed better than expected leg strength and accuracy at camp, but was never going to beat out David Akers for the placekicking job. Menzie was a fifth-round pick of the Chiefs in 2012 that the Lions claimed off waivers back in May.

Coach Jim Schwartz said K Havard Rugland impressed at Lions OTAs and minicamp.

Rugland's claim to fame is a YouTube trick-kick video that went viral and landed him a chance with the Lions. He was the primary kicker this offseason as David Akers nursed a hip injury. Akers is fully expected to be back for training camp and win the job.
