No Detroit Lions were officially cut of Friday according to the NFL’s transaction wire, but it appears the team has started making moves. According to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, the Lions are waiving wide receiver Chris Lacy.

The move doesn’t come as that big of a surprise considering the team waived Lacy back on August 9 before re-signing him two weeks later. A former Oklahoma State standout, Lacy first joined the Lions during the 2018 offseason. Though he didn’t make the initial roster, he spent most the season on the practice squad. The following year, however, he made the 53-man roster. In two season with Detroit, he made eight game appearances, but only caught three passes in his career.

Lacy is just 24 years old, and at 6-foot-3, his physical attributes could make him an attractive option for a wide receiver-needy team. Of course, he could return to Detroit on their practice squad, but he’ll have to clear waivers after the cut becomes official on Saturday at 4 p.m. ET.

One cut down, 26 more to go.
