Shead Youth LeGarrette Blount Jersey , 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 , 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 2018 roster cuts: Detroit waives Jamar McGloster, Brian Brown, Sterling Moore The Detroit Lions cuts are underway. Through a variety of sources the first three names have been leaked.According to ESPN’s Michael Rothstein, offensive lineman Jamar McGloster has been cut:McGloster was added just before the start of training camp, but never really made much of an impression, continuously playing with the third and fourth strings.Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press is reporting corner Sterling Moore is also going to be released. Brought in as a late camp signing, Moore didn’t have a lot of time to get up to speed and try to earn a roster spot. The Lions were Moore’s seventh team, with the New Orleans Saints being his most recent stop prior to signing with the Lions on August 20. His previous experience in Matt Patricia’s defense (2011-2012) likely prompted his signing Youth Ricky Jean Francois Jersey , but he wasn’t able to land a roster spot.Finally wide receiver Brian Brown is also on his way out, per Herbie Teope of Brown was the last of a wide receiver signing early in camp when Detroit was still rotating through depth players. He failed to make a single catch during the preseason, however, and never really had much of a shot at the final 53-man roster.Catch up with all of the Lions’ cuts with our 2018 tracker.
