Lions release another undrafted free agent

The Detroit Lions continued their flurry of moves by releasing another undrafted free agent on Tuesday afternoon.

It's been a busy couple of days for the Detroit Lions from a transactions standpoint. On Monday, for example, they signed three tryout players from their rookie minicamp and also released an undrafted free agent who was only signed last week. Then, on Tuesday, the Lions signed veteran wide receiver Lance Moore and an undrafted running back from Wayne State.

Also, it turns out that the Lions released undrafted running back Rasheed Williams on Tuesday. He also only joined the Lions last week, so his stay on the roster was a short one, but Dave Birkett reports that Williams may be re-signed at a later date.

For the time being, Williams is off the team, meaning the Lions now have 88 total players on their roster and 14 players from their 2015 undrafted free agents class:

  • QB Anthony Boone (Duke)
  • RB Zach Zenner (South Dakota State)
  • RB Desmond Martin (Wayne State)
  • WR Vernon Johnson (Texas A&M University-Commerce)
  • WR Erik Lora (Eastern Illinois)
  • WR Jarred Haggins (Florida State)
  • TE Casey Pierce (Kent State)
  • OG Al Bond (Memphis)
  • OG Torrian Wilson (UCF)
  • LB Kevin Snyder (Rutgers)
  • S Isaiah Johnson (Georgia Tech)
  • S Brian Suite (Utah State)
  • S Nathan Lindsey (Fort Hays State)
  • K Kyle Brindza (Notre Dame)
