Ahead of Tuesday’s deadline to make final cuts, the Lions released veteran receiver Breshad Perriman, waived receivers Victor Bolden, Damion Ratley, nose tackle Miles Brown, cornerback Mike Ford, safety Alijah Holder, offensive lineman Evan Heim and waived/injured offensive linemen Tyrell Crosby and Dan Skipper.
Detroit signed Perriman to a $3 million, one-year contract in March. He had 30 receptions for 505 yards and three touchdowns with the New York Jets last season, his fifth in the NFL.
Baltimore drafted him out of Central Florida with the No. 26 pick overall in 2015 and he has 125 catches for 2,066 yards and 14 touchdowns with the Ravens, Cleveland, Tampa Bay and the Jets. His father, Brett, was a standout receiver for the Lions in the 1990s.
