ESPN: Most likely Detroit Lion to get cut

As we start looking towards the 2019 NFL season, there’s no question about it that there will be some great training camp battles.

Like every other year, some of those battles will result in veteran players being cut around the NFL.

According to Bill Barnwell of ESPN, the Detroit Lions player most likely to be cut is running back Theo Riddick.

Here is Barnwell’s rationale for the Lions potentially cutting Riddick.

Riddick is yet another running back whose role might be limited by a move to a new offense. It seems likely that the Lions will rely more heavily on the duo of Kerryon Johnson and C.J. Anderson under Darrell Bevell. Detroit also brought back Zach Zenner and used a sixth-round pick on Ty Johnson, which could squeeze Riddick’s chances at meaningful reps. Riddick has a $3.5 million base salary in the final year of his deal, which isn’t palatable for a third or fourth back.”

Nation, which Lions player do you think is most likely to be cut prior to the start of the 2019 regular season?
