With the 2021 NFL draft less than a day away, the Detroit Lions opened up another roster spot. The team released tight end Hunter Bryant on Wednesday.

Bryant was released with a non-football injury designation, per the NFL’s transaction wire.

He joined the team as an undrafted free agent from Washington after last year’s draft. In five games, Bryant caught one pass for 44 yards.

Cutting Bryant leaves the Lions with just two tight ends with NFL experience on the 90-man roster entering the draft, T.J. Hockenson and Josh Hill. The team also has Alize Mack and Hunter Thedford at tight end.
