The Lions have cut YouTube sensation and fan favorite Havard Rugland, otherwise known as "Kickalicious", according to Lions Senior Writer Tim Twentyman.

Rugland was signed by the Lions this past off-season to compete for a spot as starting kicker, vacated by Jason Hanson. Unfortunately, he was competing with a veteran, David Akers.

Rugland gained fame online from his popular YouTube trick shot video.
