Early Monday morning, Ryan Broyles announced on twitter that he has been released from the Detroit Lions.

Broyles was a second-round pick in 2012, but injuries shortened both of his first two seasons in the NFL. Sadly, Broyles was never able to fully recover from those injuries. Since 2013, Broyles had just been active in 11 games and only managed 10 receptions in that time.

According to Dave Birkett, Broyles asked for his release.

The Lions must get their roster down 75 men by 4 p.m. ET on Tuesday. Broyles is the first announced cut of many over the next two days.

Broyles leaves Detroit with a career total of 32 catches for 420 yards and two touchdowns.
