The deadline to trim rosters down to 75 players a team was today, and the Lions sent 6 players packing to conform to the limit.
These players were released to get the roster down to the max size of 75 players:
- FB Thump Belton
- WR Edell Shepherd
- OT Rex Tucker
- DT Marcus Lewis
- LB Cole Haley
- LB James Hargrave
This is only round one of cuts this week. On Saturday, the roster will shrink to 53 players, so expect to see a few more surprises.
