Bryant, 26, is a former seventh-round pick of the Browns back in 2013. He’s currently in the final year of his four-year, $2.221 million rookie contract and stands to make a base salary of $675,000 for the 2016 season.
The Browns elected to waive him recently and was claimed by the Lions earlier in the week after severing a suspension to open the year. Bryant was once again suspended three games for violating the NFL’s substances of abuse policy, which led to the Lions placing him on the reserve/suspended list earlier in the month.
Detroit later received a roster exemption for Bryant before activating him last week.
In 2016, Bryant has appeared in five games for the Lions and recorded five tackles, three sacks, and a forced fumble.
Pettigrew, 31, is a former first-round pick of the Lions back in 2009. He was in the third year of his four-year, $16 million contract that included $8 million guaranteed and set to make a base salary of $3.65 million for the 2016 season when he and the Lions agreed to a slightly reworked contract.
According to Field Yates, Pettigrew was due a non-guaranteed base salary of $3.65 million for 2016. However, the two parties have agreed to add a $2.2 million salary split while on the PUP list and had $1.2 million of his contract fully guaranteed.
The Lions placed Pettigrew on the PUP list coming out of the preseason, as he was still working his way back from a torn ACL he suffered last year.
In 2015, Pettigrew totaled seven receptions for 67 yards receiving and a single touchdown over the course of eight games.
Diggs, 23, is a former sixth-round pick of the Lions back in May of last year. He’s currently in the second year of his four-year, $2.395 million contract and stands to make base salaries of $525,000 and $615,000 over the next two years.
Diggs, unfortunately, suffered a season-ending pectoral injury during Sunday’s win over the Saints.
In 2016, Diggs appeared in 12 games for the Lions and recorded 44 tackles, no interceptions, a forced fumble and a pass defense. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 106 cornerback out of 122 qualifying players.
