Lions release Brian Robiskie


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.
