Lions release TE Dominique Curry

Tim Fuller-US PRESSWIRE

The Detroit Lions have parted ways with tight end Dominique Curry.

In order to make room for new tight end Matt Veldman, the Detroit Lions decided to release tight end Dominique Curry. The moves were made official with an announcement from the team on Monday afternoon.

This is the second time the Lions have released Curry. He first joined the team last July, and he was let go later in the summer during the Lions' initial round of roster cuts. The Lions brought him back on a futures deal after the 2012 season, and now he is once again a free agent.

Curry actually was a wide receiver when he re-signed with the Lions after last season. The Lions decided to convert him to tight end this offseason with depth a bit thin behind Brandon Pettigrew and Tony Scheffler. With the Lions since drafting Michael Williams, adding undrafted free agent Joseph Fauria and signing Veldman, Curry became expendable.

With the Lions simply swapping tight ends, they still have 90 players on their roster.
