Lee, 24, is a former seventh-round pick of the Vikings back in 2017. He was waived coming out of the preseason before being signed to the Vikings’ practice squad.
The 49ers signed Lee to their active roster soon after and was on and off of their roster before eventually signing on with the Lions this past March.
Detroit opted to waive Lee on Thursday.
In 2020, Lee has appeared in four games for the Lions and recorded one tackle.
