The Detroit Lions are looking for a breakthrough campaign in 2022. The team hasn't finished above .500 since the 2017 season and lost 13 games in 2021 alone, the most Detroit has lost since dropping 14 games in 2009.

If they want to turn things around, they may have to make some tough roster decisions. Here are three players that won't be on the Lions roster in the 2022 season.

Lions Roster 2022

3. Will Harris, SS

Will Harris was not particularly effective last season, getting a 42.6 overall grade from ProFootballFocus. That could spell trouble for Harris, as Detroit can save over $2.5 million by cutting Harris. That price tag could be too steep for Detroit, who look likely to start DeShon Elliott and Tracy Walker over Harris.

2. Evan Brown, C

Evan Brown is Frank Ragnow's backup and that's not exactly a recipe for playing time. Ragnow is one of the best centers in football and it's hard to see Brown getting on the field much. Sure, he offers the versatility to play guard as well, but the interior of Detroit's OL is rock solid. The Lions can save about $1.4 million if they move on.

1. David Blough, QB

David Blough is the third-string QB in Detroit, but the Lions might not need to carry three QBs. Tim Boyle seems to have the QB2 job locked up and Detroit can save just under $1 million by moving on from Blough, while cutting Boyle would save $250 thousand. If they're picking between one of the two, Boyle is a much safer bet to make the roster.
