The Lions have made a few roster cuts on Monday morning.

Detroit announced the team has waived tight end Nolan Givan and center Ryan McCollum and released veteran tight end Garrett Griffin.

Givan joined the club as an undrafted free agent in May. McCollum appeared in 13 games with one start for Detroit last year as an undrafted rookie.

Griffin signed with the Lions in March. He had played under head coach Dan Campbell with the Saints. In 20 career games with nine starts, he’s recorded five catches for 43 yards.

Teams must reduce their rosters to 85 players by Tuesday’s 4 p.m. ET deadline.

  1. Lions need to draft a QB to build around if they want to be contenders……wait….nevermind.

    Hopefully Goff is next!

  2. The Lions don’t need a QB right now. Their immediate concern is defense. If only some knew the game….

  3. I think you missed it dude, he’s talking about the Lions when they drafted Stafford, built around him and failed.

    If only people like you understood sarcasm and were less sensitive.
