The Lions have officially submitted and released their 53-man roster. I think most of these come as no surprise (especially with the leaks all day long), but here is the list of the 22 players that did not make the final roster:
LB Rufus Alexander, QB Brooks Bollinger, G Milford Brown, TE Carson Butler, RB Aveion Cason, WR Keary Colbert, DE Sean Conover, K Billy Cundiff, DT Chuck Darby, RB Tristan Davis, LB Zack Follett, C Dan Gerberry, TE Dan Gronkowski, WR Dane Looker, DB Calvin Lowry, T Lydon Murtha, DB Ramzee Robinson, DB Stuart Schweigert, DT Shaun Smith, LB Spenser Smith, WR John Standeford.
Also placed CB Chris Roberson on the Reserve/Injured
Look for this roster to change frequently as the Lions will surely be scouring the waiver wire. By the sounds of it, Mayhew and Schwartz already have a "hitlist" of potentially waived players that they will be going after, so get ready to see a flurry of activity over the next few days. I'm sure Sean will keep us up-to-date as these signings unfold.
