Bryant Johnson to be Released by the Detroit Lions

The Detroit Lions receiving corps lost a member today when the club told Bryant Johnson he would be released. He finished his Lions tenure with 53 catches for 627 yards and three touchdowns in two seasons. He had been pushed down the depth chart with the addition of Nate Burleson last season and the selection of Titus Young last April and lacks the special teams prowess necessary to hold down the WR4 spot on the roster.

Things didn’t work out in Detroit but Bryant Johnson obviously doesn’t harbor any ill-feelings. He put out this parting statement on twitter:

God is with me no matter where I end up. The Lions are headed in the right direction and I wish you all well. God Bless

Johnson will now go about the business of looking for his fourth team since being drafted in the first round in 2003.
