NFL Roster Cuts: Lions Release Brian Clark, Keep Dennis Northcutt

Dave Birkett is reporting that the Lions have released wide receiver Brian Clark. Also, they have apparently decided to keep Dennis Northcutt.

What this means for someone like Derrick Williams is unclear right now. Many (myself included), believe that the Lions will only keep four receivers in order to open up a roster spot at another position, such as tight end. If that is the case, then Williams will be released. If Detroit keeps five wideouts, though, Williams should be on the team.
