The Lions move wasn't unexpected. Dimke was considered a long shot to beat out veteran kicker Jason Hanson going into camp.
Dimke did all he could to impress the coaching staff while with the Lions. In three preseason games he was 2-for-2 in field goals (40 yards, and 31 yards) and 3-for-3 in extra points.
Dimke hopes that performance will land him a shot with another NFL team in need of a kicker.
