After a weekend of tough cuts and complicated roster decisions, the Detroit Lions have established their initial 53-man roster for the 2023 season. I say “initial” 53-man roster, because over the next few days, there are likely to be a few additional moves that will move players on and off the roster that you see below. Detroit could add some player on the waiver wire, they may move a player or two to the injured reserve list, or there could be a trade or two down the line.

Regardless, the 53-man roster below represents the core of what this team will be this year, as will the 16-man roster the Lions will begin to establish on Wednesday around Noon ET.
