The Lions have released a favorite receiver of Matthew Stafford. Kris Durham, a former college teammate and roommate of Stafford’s, was cut today.
Durham played well at times for the Lions, but when Detroit signed Golden Tate this offseason there was one less roster spot available for a wide receiver, and it appears that Durham will lose the numbers game to be one of the backups behind Tate and Calvin Johnson.
The Lions were very deep at WR in camp this year and unfortunately for Durham he's the odd man out. For now it appears to be good news for often-injury Ryan Broyles who is back healthy and has looked good.
