The Detroit Lions are beginning to shift their focus to a transition from training camp as the start of gameplay creeps closer. Their first scheduled pre-season game is September 13 against the Chicago Bears.
And as such, the 53 man roster will start to take shape. Plenty of tough decisions lay ahead for team management of who to keep and who to cut, but it sounds as though the first cut has come through.
According to Dave Birkett of The Detroit Free Press, the team plans on cutting wide receiver Geremy Davis.
Davis originally agreed to terms with the Lions on a free-agent deal in March of this year:
“After originally entering the NFL with the New York Giants in 2015 as a sixth-round draft pick (186th overall) out of Connecticut, Davis spent the last four seasons (2016-19) with the Los Angeles Chargers. He has appeared in 36 career games (one start) and has posted five receptions for 59 yards (11.8 avg.) while adding 17 special teams tackles (11 solo).”
