The practice squad contracts for Lions WR Rashad Ross and OT Jason Weaver officially expired on Monday.
This means that both players are now free agents. However, they could still be signed to futures deals in the coming weeks.
Ross, 26, originally signed on with the Titans as an undrafted free agent out of Arizona State back in 2013. He had brief stints with the Chiefs, Redskins and Bears before returning to Washington during the 2014 season.
Ross has managed to make the 53-man roster in each of the past two years with the Redskins. However, he was cut loose by Washington back in December and later added to the Lions’ practice squad.
In 2016, Ross has appeared in five games and caught one pass for eight yards receiving and no touchdowns. He has also contributed 22 kick return yards for Washington this season.
Editor’s note: The initial post mentioned that these players had signed future/reserve contracts, but their practice squad contracts actually expired.
