Detroit Lions Release Quinn Barham

When it came out on Monday that the Detroit Lions had signed wide receiver Jarett Dillard, a corresponding move was not announced. The same thing happened when wide receiver Maurice Stovall was signed last week. The team waited a day to make an announcement about who had been released, and wide receiver Jared Karstetter ended up being the player let go.

This time around, the Lions did not release a wide receiver to make room for a new one. Instead, they opted to release offensive tackle Quinn Barham, who was signed as an undrafted free agent out of Penn State earlier this offseason.

With Dillard joining the team, the Lions now have a total of 13 wide receivers on the roster. The majority of them are competing for one spot, so it will be interesting to see who emerges during training camp as the favorite for that final spot at the position.
