Marijuana suspension a factor in Lions parting with C.J. Mosley
by Shawn Krest |

Unsigned Lions defensive tackle C.J. Mosley was sent home from the team's game in London last season after he was found with marijuana in his hotel room. 

The incident is one of the factors the team is taking into consideration in their decision on whether to re-sign Mosley. 

"We take everything into consideration -- I mean, everything," coach Jim Caldwell said, when asked about the incident being a factor, per MLive. "You know how it is in our business. We put everything under the microscope. We take a look at it, and we make a determination on each and every individual according to what he brings to the table -- positive or negative."

The team has not pursued Mosley since he became a free agent in February, and the Lions appear to be prepared to move on without him.
