Lions Establish 53; Pinner, Scott Cut

A handful of surprises lined Detroit's final cuts, including running back Artose Pinner and offensive tackle Jonathan Scott. Lions complete roster (sort of) inside, including a complete list of those released.

Several surprises were among the final cuts made by the Detroit Lions. Fan favorite Greg Blue, offensive tackle and last year's fifth-round pick Jonathan Scott, running back Artose Pinner, and guard Frank Davis highlighted 20 players that did not crack the final roster.

Running backs Aveion Cason and Brian Calhoun were placed on the Reserve/Injured list, and thus do not count against the active roster.

Below is the complete cut list, followed by Detroit's 53 man roster.
