Detroit Lions Release Steven Miller and Jake Scott


The Detroit Lions’ 53-man roster is gaining some clarity with recent news that the team plans to release guard Jake Scott and running back/return man Steven Miller.

That clears the way for Micheal Spurlock to make the team to return kicks and punts and likely indicates Leroy Harris and Dylan Gandy will make the team as interior offensive line reserves.
