Major Wright, Brian Robiskie AP

The Lions released wide receiver Brian Robiskie on Monday, per the NFL’s transaction report.

Robiskie caught four passes for 44 yards in six games for Detroit last season, including a touchdown in the season finale against Chicago. The Lions signed Robiskie on Oct. 24, 2012, the same day the club placed Nate Burleson on injured reserve.

A second-round pick of the Browns in 2009, Robiskie has hauled in 43 passes for 485 yards and four touchdowns in four NFL seasons. He has made 14 career starts, all with Cleveland from 2009 through 2011.

Brian Robiskie’s release leaves the Lions with 10 wide receivers on the roster. His father, Terry, is the Falcons’ wide receivers coach.

    Still waiting for the day that Mike Thomas gets released and the waste of time and money on him gets brushed under the rug. At least Robiskie wasn’t an expensive waste.

    I see what your trying to get at by bringing up his father, but he’s not going to the Falcons…..

    If I remember right he was the most pro-ready WR in his class according to the experts..

    The other options included johnny knox, brian hartline, austin collie, mohamed massaquoi, louis murphy, ramses barden, brandon tate and mike wallace.

    Going the safe route for the browns paid off very well.

    Slow as molasses with zero ability to get separation from DB’s. He’s simply never open.

    With only 10 receivers left on the roster it is now clear what the Lions are thinking come draft day.

    Another guy the Vikings should take a flyer on.

    Let’s be honest. The Lions might have ten guys on the roster listed as wideouts but they only REALLY have one wide reciever.
