The Detroit Lions did a little roster cleanup on the day before the 2022 NFL draft. Detroit waived tight end Hunter Bryant and linebacker Curtis Bolton from the team.

Bryant showed a little promise as a receiving TE as an undrafted rookie out of Washington in 2020, but injuries were a constant problem. He missed time with a concussion as a rookie and then missed all of 2021 with an injury suffered away from football. The Lions had previously waived him with a non-football injury designation and Bryant reverted to the team’s injured reserve. He also had a stint on the reserve/COVID-19 list while on IR.

Bolton played in five games for the Lions in 2021, all on special teams. The fourth-year LB has bounced around several NFL teams since going undrafted in 2019 out of Oklahoma.
