Detroit Lions Release WR Troy Burrell

In order to make room for the newly signed R.J. Archer, the Detroit Lions have parted ways with wide receiver Troy Burrell.

Burrell, who played his college ball in Detroit at Wayne State, was one of the Lions' undrafted free agent signings. He was one of four undrafted wide receivers who signed with the team this year, and now only two of those players are left. Jared Karstetter was released to make room for Maurice Stovall, and now that Burrell is gone, only Patrick Edwards and Wallace Miles remain.

The addition of Archer gives the Lions four quarterbacks on the roster. Matthew Stafford is the starter and Shaun Hill is the backup, and Archer will battle Kellen Moore during training camp for a chance to be the Lions' third-string quarterback.
