Today’s minor, er, move:
- Waived: TE Hunter Bryant
Bryant played three seasons at Washington, including a 2019 campaign where he earned First team All-Pac-12 honors. He went undrafted during last year’s draft, but he eventually overcome an ankle injury to make the Lions active roster. He ultimately appeared in five games for Detroit, hauling in a single 44-yard pass while appearing on 25 offensive snaps. Bryant also had a stint on the injured reserve with a concussion.
As Kyle Meinke of MLive.com points out, Bryant was a favorite of the former front office, with the tight end earning the most money among last year’s grouping of undrafted free agents. New general manager Brad Holmes doesn’t have that same connection to the Lions’ young players, leading to today’s move.
