3 recently cut players that the Detroit Lions should sign
By Kellen Voss
The Detroit Lions set their final 53-man roster this weekend, but here are a few players they can pick up to make that roster even better.
One of the saddest days in football just happened earlier this weekend, as more than 1,000 prospective NFL players had their professional dreams cut short due to NFL rosters being required to make their final roster cuts and finalize their 53-man rosters.
But any savvy NFL fan knows that that 53-man roster is far from final, as it’s key for teams to pick up these recently cut players in order to stay afloat in their respective divisions, provide injury depth for starters, and just maybe pick up a few impact players that fell through the cracks.
While the Detroit Lions‘ initial 53-man roster is intriguing, here are three recently-cut players that could make that roster even more intriguing
Jaron Brown, WR – Cut by the Seattle Seahawks
In a modern NFL offense, an offensive coordinator can never have too many weapons to work with, especially weapons that are familiar to the respective coordinator.
That is exactly the case with Jaron Brown, who previously spent last season working with former Seattle Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, who is now with the Lions.
Brown actually had one of his most successful statistical season of his career last season in Seattle, as he was able to rack up five touchdowns to go with 166 yards.
The six-year veteran gives the Lions another possession receiver to play alongside Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones and Danny Amendola. While he hasn’t caught many NFL passes (100 catches in his career for 1,343 yards), Brown provides depth in the receiving core and could be another red zone target for Stafford.
Update: The Seattle Seahawks are reportedly re-signing Jaron Brown, that according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
