NFL Roster Cuts: Lions Release Caleb Campbell, Plan To Put Him On Practice Squad

Caleb Campbell has been released by the Lions, but according to him on Twitter, he will have a spot on the practice squad.

Put on practice squad today, not satisfied but its another step to me playing on sundays. DREAM IS STILL ALIVE!! Can't stop won't stop

Campbell has to clear waivers before the Lions can put him on the practice squad, but I don't expect another team to sign him to their 53-man roster, so he should stay with the franchise. While some may view this as a setback, just look at what Zack Follett did a year ago. He was released, signed to the practice squad and then became a starter. Being put on the practice squad is not a bad thing by any means.
