- IN: DeAndre Levy, Tahir Whitehead, Josh Bynes, Antwione Williams, Kyle Van Noy, Jon Bostic(IR)
- OUT: Zaviar Gooden, Khaseem Greene, Jayson DiManche
OUTLOOK: The Lions will roll the dice and only roster a total of five linebackers. Mostly playing in the nickel package nowadays, only two linebackers are needed on the field for a large portion of the game. None of the current Lions backups have done enough to make it difficult to let them go. Special team contributions will have to come from other positions.
