(Original Caption) The Detroit Lions of the National football League cut three players on September 7th, including veteran defensive back Dick (Night Train) Lane, shown in this 1964 file photo. Land had 13 years with the NFL, playing his last five with the Lions. The 37-year-old back holds the NFL record for the most interceptions in one season and ranks second for the most interceptions in his career with 68. The Lions, trimming their roster to 43, also cut rookie linebacker John Flynn, the former University of Oklahoma player and defensive back Dick Compton, who would have been in his fourth year of NFL play.
