Lions reportedly releasing Nevin Lawson

The Detroit Lions are releasing defensive back Nevin Lawson, reports Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

What It Means:

Lawson has spent his entire career in Detroit after being selected in the fourth round of the 2014 draft. The move saves the Lions $4.675 million against the cap. He worked in the slot last season.

Lawson was Pro Football Focus' 104th cover corner out of 123 qualifiers in 2018.
