Detroit Lions Make Last Two Cuts To Get Roster Down to 75

The Detroit Lions (and every other NFL team) have until 4 p.m. today to trim their roster to a maximum of 75 players. The Lions didn’t need to take their decisions down to the wire as all the names whose time with the Lions has come to an end have trickled out.

Just two cuts were left to be revealed after the team let go of several players over the weekend and Havard Rugland, DeQuan Menzie and Terrence Austin earlier today.

According to DetroitLions.com beat writer Tim Twentyman, the Lions have cut Cameron Morrah and Matt Veldman, both tight ends.

With rosters trimmed from 90 to 75 players, the Lions will take the remaining players to Buffalo to face the Bills in their final preseason game. More cuts will be made in the days following as the team moves forward with determining who will make the final 53-man roster for the regular season. The team will be able to carry eight additional players on their practice squad.
