The Detroit Lions made their post-draft roster moves late Monday, officially signing 11 players to undrafted free-agent contracts and cutting players currently on the roster.
Among the players cut were kicker John Potter -- meaning the kicking battle in the fall will be between seventh-round draft pick Nate Freese and Giorgio Tavecchio -- and receiver Carlin Isles, who will head to the U.S. rugby team. Also gone are safety Akwasi Owusu-Ansah and tight end Matt Veldman, both of whom played for Detroit last season in the finale against Minnesota.
They did this to add 11 undrafted free agents. Here are those players. We'll have short profiles on all of them this week.
Chad Abram, FB, Florida State; Alex Bullard, OG, Tennessee; Jerome Couplin, DB, William & Mary; James Franklin, QB, Missouri; Justin Jackson, LB, Wake Forest; Cornelius Lucas, OT, Kansas State; Gabe Lynn, DB, Oklahoma; Jacob Maxwell, TE, Louisiana-Lafayette; D.J. Morrell, OG, Old Dominion; Andrew Peacock, WR, Appalachian State; Mohammed Seisay, DB, Nebraska.
