Earlier today I wrote about which Detroit Lions undrafted free agent was most likely to make the final roster. One UDFA who is now officially out of the running is linebacker Alex Elkins as the team released him today.

What the Lions do with the newly created spot on the roster remains to be seen, although MLive’s Justin Rogers suggested on twitter that the team could look to add a cornerback or defensive end. The team has dealt with injuries at both positions with a number of players missing some practice time as a result.
