Detroit Lions Release Trevor Canfield

In addition to releasing cornerback Eric King earlier this week, the Detroit Lions also parted ways with offensive guard Trevor Canfield. Technically the Lions parted ways with Canfield back in the summer, but since he was placed on the waived/injured list, his rights stayed with Detroit. Apparently this offseason he was back under contract or at least under Detroit's control, because they Lions have now let him go for good.

Canfield joined the Lions last April. The Seattle Seahawks released him, and Detroit put in a waiver claim. Interestingly, the Chicago Bears also claimed Canfield at the time, hoping to add depth to their offensive line right before the 2010 NFL Draft. Instead he ended up in Detroit, where he got hurt during training camp and that was pretty much it.

Since entering the league in 2009, Canfield has been with the Arizona Cardinals, Seahawks and Lions. He has yet to appear in a regular season game.
