2013 Detroit Lions Roster


The cuts have been made and the roster is set.  The Detroit Lions have their team and are ready for the 2013 campaign. The Lions emerged from the pre-season healthy and without major injury.

Although, there are a few surprising omissions from the 53 man roster.

Amari Spievey did not make the final cut.  A few of the reasons may be the health of Louis Delmas and the signing of the versatile Rashean Mathis. Ron Bartell was also realeased.  This move surprised a number of fans considering he was the starting corner on the preseason depth chart.

All of the Lions draft choices made it through unscathed although some may make the team unconventionally.   WR Corey Fuller and LB Brandon Hepburn were released but then were signed to the Lions 8 man practice squad.  TE Micheal Willams was placed on the injured list after an injury in the final preseason game at Buffalo. The rest of the 2013 Draft Class made the cut.

UPDATE:  Lions Claim Dejon Gomes Off Waivers Release Rocky McIntosh
