Detroit Lions cut of Harris could haunt them

Having a really good punter won't mean much until you have don't have a good punter.
The Lions took a risk by cutting Nick Harris and keeping undrafted rookie Ryan Donahue instead. The pressure is on the kid. Not that Donahue didn't perform well in the preseason - he did. It was obviously based on a tight salary cap, perhaps even because Jason Hanson made the squad ahead of Dave Rayner as kicker.

I wasn't sure why they opted to keep the 41 year old placekicker. No salary cap issue there?

Larry Baker,
I think salary cap was everything in this case. They could only to afford to keep Hanson or Harris. Obviously they felt keeping Hanson was more a priority.
