The Lions’ roster is in compliance of the 75-man limit, after the team cut two more players today. According to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press (Twitter links), those latest roster casualties are tight end Jacob Maxwell and offensive lineman Bryce Quigley.
The release of Maxwell, who received a $3K signing bonus when he joined the Lions in May out of Louisiana Lafayette, comes as no surprise, given the team’s logjam at tight end. Similarly, Quigley hadn’t been expected to make a push for Detroit’s regular season roster after signing with the club in June out of San Diego State.
After trimming the roster to 75 players today, the Lions will have until Saturday afternoon to make their next series of cuts to get down to 53.
