On Tuesday, the Detroit Lions made their final cuts to get the roster down to 53 players.
Earlier this morning, news broke that the Lions had released Blough, leaving them with just one quarterback on their roster.
Detroit Lions expected to sign QB Nate Sudfeld
Just moments ago, NFL insider Ian Rapoport reported that the Lions are expected to sign former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Nate Sudfeld.
According to Rappaport, the Lions had tried to trade for Sudfeld but now they get him as a free agent instead.
Earlier in the week, 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan talked about whether or not he would keep three quarterbacks (Trey Lance, Jimmy Garoppolo, Brock Purdy, or Nate Sudfeld) on the roster or if he would roll with two.
“Yeah, it's always hard, but it's something you debate every year,” said Shanahan on keeping three quarterbacks. “It’s something we'll debate this year. It's not always just the quarterbacks, it's how it plays out with other positions.”

During the preseason, Sudfeld, who was originally selected by the Washington Redskins in the sixth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, played in three games for the 49ers, completing 26-of-38 passes for 254 yards and two touchdowns.
In his NFL career, Sudfeld has played in just four games, completing 25-of-37 passes for 188 yards and a touchdown to go along with an interception.
