    Detroit Lions make difficult decision to part with Don Muhlbach

    Allen Park — On his 40th birthday, after 17 seasons and 260 games — the second-most in franchise history — the Detroit Lions are parting ways with long snapper Don Muhlbach. 

    “We are going to let Don Muhlbach go, it will be official tomorrow,” Lions coach Dan Campbell said shortly after taking the podium for his daily training camp press conference on Tuesday. “Look, I got the utmost respect for Don. I played with Don. … He’s a pro, he’s an even better person, and he’s meant a lot to this organization.

    “He’s always represented it well, and he’s an outstanding teammate. He was always locked in and a man of his word. So, I hate it man. This is the hardest time, especially with a player like him. But that’s coming down the wire, and I’d be remiss if I didn’t open up with that for him.”

    Asked why the Lions were making this move now, Campbell summarized the decision in three words: “It’s just time.”

    Muhlbach had been a model of consistency and durability during his time with the Lions. Signed as an undrafted free agent out of Texas A&M by the Baltimore Ravens in 2004, he was picked up by the Lions during training camp that year as an injury replacement for Jody Littleton.
