If you follow NFL transactions closely, you have come to realize that being a player on the fringe of making a roster can be compared to a roller coaster ride.
That's exactly what Detroit Lions 2017 6th Round draft pick Brad Kaaya has already experienced in his first year in the league.
On Monday, the Lions announced they were waiving Kaaya to make room for defensive end Khyri Thornton on the 53-man roster.
Now, one day later, it looks like Kaaya has cleared waivers and will soon be rejoining the Lions, this time as a member of the practice squad.

After going through training camp with the Lions, Kaaya was waived on Sept. 2 and then claimed by the Carolina Panthers the following day. He was then waived by the Panthers on Oct. 17 before being claimed by the Lions a day later.
As you can see, it's been quite the ride already for the Lions rookie and he has not even played in a game yet.

As expected, the Lions have released punter Jeff Locke to make room for Sam Martin, who has yet to play this season.
