After the Lions weren't able to find any trade partners for tight end Eric Ebron, the team decided to release him today prior to the start of free agency in order to avoid paying his $8 million salary.
Ebron turns 25 next month and will surely find a team in need of help at the tight end position. He was the No. 13 scoring fantasy tight end in PPR leagues last season, and if he finds a team where he will be the unquestioned No. 1 tight end, then he will be someone to target in fantasy drafts.
