Carlin Isles can turn his complete focus to rugby.  The USA Rugby speedster was cut by the Detroit Lions on Monday.  He was signed by the NFL team on December 26, 2013 as a member of the practice squad with the potential to play on the travel squad in 2014.


But the move by the Lions was no big surprise with Isles signing with the Glasgow Warriors of the Pro12, the professional rugby league of Ireland, Italy, Scotland, and Wales, earlier this year.
