When the Detroit Lions started waiving players left and right during the week, it wasn’t just to show some players the door. They needed to open up some roster spaces to sign more undrafted rookies for this weekend’s rookie minicamp.
The Lions dumped eight players this week and used all of those roster spots to add to the UDFA class. Previously limited to just four signings due to a lack of room on the 90-man roster, Detroit added eight more players under contract.
The new additions:
Cedric Boswell, CB, Miami OH
Nolan Givan, TE, SE Louisiana
Josh Johnson, WR, Tulsa
Zein Obeid, OL, Ferris State
Kalil Pimpleton, WR/RS, Central Michigan
Corey Sutton, WR, Appalachian State
Demetrius Taylor, DT, Appalachian State
Jermaine Waller, CB, Georgia Tech
They join the four prior UDFAs who all received at least $100,000 to sign with the Lions: TCU OT Obinna Eze, Michigan State OL Kevin Jarvis, San Deigo State RB Greg Bell and San Jose State TE Derrick Deese Jr.
