Brian Robiskie was released by the Detroit Lions on Monday. Robiskie, who played in six games with four catches for 44 yards and a touchdown in 2012, was signed midseason due to numerous injuries.
The 25-year-old wide
receiver, who played at Ohio State, would have had a tough time making the Lions’ roster.
Robiskie’s dad, Terry Robiskie, is the Atlanta Falcons’ wide receivers coach.
The Lions currently have nine wide receivers on their roster: Calvin Johnson, Nate Burleson, Ryan Broyles, Patrick Edwards, Lance Long, Kassim Osgood (signed one-year deal on March 12), Kris Durham, Mike Thomas and Devin Thomas.
Burleson underwent surgery for his broken leg last October and should be ready to go for training camp.
Broyles, a second-round draft pick a year ago, underwent his second ACL surgery in two years. He should be ready early in the season, if not sooner.
