After a round of cuts on Monday, 10 cuts in total, the Detroit Lions roster is now at 78 players. Three more moves need to be made before Tuesday’s 4 p.m. deadline to get the team to the league’s 75 player mandate, although wide receiver Corey Fuller‘s ultimate move to the physically unable to perform list will count as one of those moves.

In Monday’s round of cuts, wide receiver Quinshad Davis was among those to be sent packing. Head coach Jim Caldwell said the following via the Detroit Lions about the team narrowing down the roster at the wide receiver position.

“Cuts are never easy. Today is one of those days that’s not one of your favorite days because you get a lot of guys that have a lot of hopes and dreams about playing in this league, and it’s just been delayed for them. Doesn’t mean it’s finished for them, but it’s been somewhat delayed. We’ve taken a look at the cuts in terms of who we cut, and it’s basically we have to do a comparison between what we think about their relationship to the rest of the team and what we’re trying to get done, and make those decisions accordingly. I’m not going to go into each specific guy, where he fell short, or anything of that nature. They all worked extremely hard and did a great job for us.”

Davis, who was held without a catch in Saturday’s 30-9 loss against the Baltimore Ravens, had three catches for 27 yards in the preseason.

The team still has seven wide receivers on their active roster: Anquan BoldinJace BillingsleyMarvin JonesT.J. JonesAndre RobertsJay Lee, and Golden Tate. Wide receiver Ryan Spadola is still with the team as well, but already on the injured reserve list.

Also included in Monday’s cuts were G Geoff Schwartz, TE Matthew Mulligan, CB Crezdon Butler, K Devon Bell, G Chase Ferris, DE Deonte Gibson, DE Louis Palmer, CB Rashaad Reynolds, and DE Quanterus Smith.
