Lions Roster Cuts: Nine More Players Released

The Detroit Lions are starting to kick their roster cuts into high gear. More and more players are being informed that they have been let go, and the latest list of cuts includes nine new names. Via Tim Twentyman, here they are:

  • WR Nate Hughes
  • WR Wallace Miles
  • TE Alex Gottlieb
  • TE Austin Wells
  • DE Ugo Chinasa
  • DE Edmon McClam
  • DT Tracy Robertson
  • LB Carmen Messina
  • CB Ross Weaver

All of these cuts were expected to happen going into Friday, as all of these players were toward the bottom of the roster. While guys like Miles and Messina certainly have made a strong case to make the practice squad, there wasn't room for them on the 53-man roster, so they were let go. If they clear waivers, the Lions will have a chance to sign them to the practice squad on Saturday.
