Detroit Lions Release Braylon Broughton After Failed Physical


Braylon Broughton was in, now Braylon Broughton is out.

The Detroit Lions added Broughton via a waiver claim after he was released by the New Orleans Saints but they have released him just two days later after failing a physical.

It is not known what exactly caused the failed physical but it pretty much irrelevant at this point because Broughton will not be a member of the Lions.

This once again leaves the Lions with one spot open on the 90-man offseason roster. The Lions could make a low-level free agent signing or wait to see what opportunities pop up on the waiver wire.
