Bottom Line: Don't Get Too Comfortable

Yes, the Lions' initial roster has been released, but do not think for one second that it is set in stone. In fact, I expect Lions GM Brad Holmes to make multiple additions/subtractions to the 53-man roster prior to the Lions' Week 1 matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs. With that being said, congratulations are in order for the 53 players who survived training camp and made the final cut.
