    Dan Campbell talks about acquiring a new backup QB

    The Detroit Lions have just over 24 hours to trim their current roster of 80 players down to 53 players and head coach Dan Campbell and GM Brad Holmes have some very tough decisions to make.

    On Monday, Campbell spoke to reporters and he said that he does not have anything new to add to what he said on Sunday following the Lions' 19-9 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. He said that he was in the process of meeting with Brad Holmes as they continue to work through the process.

    Campbell did say that he and Holmes know what Godwin Igwebuike brings to the table as a kick returner.

    Campbell said the Lions are going to have to cut some players that produced for the team in 2021 “but that's a sign of progress too.”

    Campbell added that when it comes to rookie CB Chase Lucas, he is one of those guys “we're talking about right now, what do we do?”

    Nation, when you look up and down the current 80-man roster, which Detroit Lions players from last season do you think are in jeopardy of being cut?
