The Detroit Lions preseason is over, meaning roster cuts season is upon us. Over the next day or so, Lions coaches will be agonizing over which players will make the team, while players will be anxiously waiting by their phones hoping to hear nothing. It's a stressful time for everyone involved, but it's an unfortunately necessary evil for building a final roster.

By Saturday, Sept. 3 at 4 p.m. ET, the Lions must be down to a 53-man roster. Remember, we don't always hear about the cuts until after the deadline, so try to remain patient.

While we wait, here is some reading material for you:
