The Detroit Lions’ 53-man roster for the 2019 is set... for now. On Saturday, the team announced the final transactions required to get to the NFL’s 53-man limit by the 4 p.m. ET deadline.

It’s always important to keep in mind that the 53-man roster is fluid, especially with over 1,000 new players available via waivers or free agency. Some of the players that you see below could be gone as early as Sunday.
