UPDATE: Tyler Polumbus was actually traded to the Seahawks rather than outright released.
The deadline for NFL teams to get down to 75 players is at 4 p.m. this afternoon. The Lions now have to make only one more move to get to 75 players, as offensive tackle Tyler Polumbus was released this morning.
Polumbus was just claimed off waivers from Denver last week. In fact, the Lions ended up with Polumbus instead of the Seahawks or Texans, which also claimed him. Thanks to having a higher waiver priority, Detroit got him the first time around, but today they released him.
After the Lions get rid of one more player today, they will have to say goodbye to 22 players on Saturday. The deadline to get down to 53 players is on Saturday at 4 p.m.
