Lions Trim Roster To 53

The Lions are the latest team to officially trim their roster all the way down to 53. After stockpiling quarterbacks, they’ve now cut two of them. Former AAF passer Luis Perez and Tom Savage were both let go. That means that legendary journeyman Josh Johnson has made the team as Matthew Stafford‘s backup, and recently acquired rookie David Blough has made the squad as the third-stringer. Detroit also waived Isaac Nauta, a rookiie tight end out of Georgia who they drafted in the seventh-round.

    cant believe Johnson was picked up off the street last year and now suddenly he’s considered one of the sport’s best 64 QB’s

      If you saw him play last year…. that’s why he’s still in the league

        Also, he was the #1 overall pick in the AAF last year, though he never got to play due to ankle surgery.

    I guess the next stop on the Tom Savage World Tour will be Indianapolis.
