Detroit Lions cutting DB DeShawn Shead , CB Mike Ford We have our first big surprise on Detroit Lions cut day. Per Ian Rapoport, the Lions are parting ways with former Seahawks defensive back DeShawn Shead.Shead was brought in this offseason with a lot of hype surrounding him. Though he was just returning from a torn ACL at the end of the 2017 season, Shead played well with the Seahawks prior to the injury.In Detroit, he offered a lot of versatility, being able to play as an outside corner, in the nickel or even as a safety. However, it never really turned out that way in his brief time in Detroit.He entered training camp as the teams No. 2 cornerback, but that quickly gave way to Nevin Lawson as camp went on. Then Shead went missing for a week , presumably due to an injury. He reappeared in the preseason finale, and the Lions gave him plenty of reps to prove his worth, both as an outside corner and nickelback. However, the Lions must not have liked what they saw.In addition to cutting Shead, the Lions are also moving on from cornerback Mike Ford. Ford was one of the biggest names signed for the Lions 2018 UDFA class, but the road to a roster spot was always going to be a very long one. Boasting a great athletic profile and multiple teams trying to bring him to camp, Ford was set up to display his skills in a competitive position group, but wasn’t able to do enough to push someone else off the roster.He is very likely headed to the practice squad to develop Color Rush Christian Jones Jersey , the Lions having paid a sizable sum to secure his services as a UDFA.This leaves the Lions with just five cornerbacks on the roster right now.Lions roster cuts: Detroit to cut LB Freddie Bishop, TE Sean McGrath The Detroit Lions have an hour to get their roster down to 53 men, and now they’re under 10 roster moves to make. The Detroit Free Press is reporting that veteran linebacker Freddie Bishop is the latest player to be cut. Bishop, formerly of Western Michigan University, was added back in July, just before the start of training camp. Prior to his short stint in Detroit, Bishop had played two season with the Jets, making five game appearances and 10 tackles. Bishop got plenty of playing time throughout the preseason Youth Frank Ragnow Jersey , but when he only got three snaps during the Lions’ dress rehearsal against the Buccaneers, it looked like his fate my have been sealed.Considering the Lions have already cut Chad Meredith, the odds of Miles Killebrew, Trevor Bates and Darnell Sankey making the team are much higher. There’s a good chance two of those three names will make it on the Lions’ initial 53-man roster. Although, if the Lions decide to only keep seven linebackers, two of those players could be gone.In addition to Bishop, the Lions are also cutting tight end Sean McGrath per Dave Birkett.
