Roster cut down time

Recommended Posts

It's that time of year. Teams start cutting players to get down to that final 53 man roster.

Lions waive Cyrus Kouandjio

Quote

The Detroit Lions signed Cyrus Kouandjio on the final day of minicamp. On the day of the team's final practice of the preseason, the offensive tackle was cut.

Kouandjio had been brought in to compete with Greg Robinson for the starting left tackle spot after Taylor Decker had shoulder surgery. That competition never really materialized, though. Robinson took over the top role by the end of the first week of training camp and never relinquished the role.

He missed a few days of camp this preseason due to injury and on Monday, Lions coach Jim Caldwell mentioned Kouandjio's health when he was asked about his performance.

Do you think this opens a spot for Lucas/Norton?

Lions have cut WR Keshawn Martin and TE Tim Wright.

I'm shocked by the Wright cut. He played better than every TE who played besides Fells.

Surprise roster stay?

Also, a source told ESPN that the Lions will keep Kasey Redfern as the punter because Sam Martin is expected to start the year on the non-football injury list. Martin (ankle) has not punted or been spotted at practice all preseason.

Redfern has played well this preseason. I actually don't mind this move, especially if Martin is not 100%.

Im very curious to see what happens with the Billingsley/Abbrederis spot. I think Jace brings more to special teams, and also as a reciever. Great hands! Abbrederis may have hurt his stock in that last preseason game!

Didn't expect to see Antwione Williams waived

 

Same, he's not great but the LB corps are weak already, IMO. Figured he'd at least make it as a backup/ST.

This was a bad move. They should have moved on from TJ Jones
