Bawden, 24, was selected by the Lions in the seventh round out of San Diego State in 2018. He had just completed a four-year, $2.5 million rookie deal.
Bawden has ended each of his first two seasons on injured reserve as well after suffering a torn ACL as a rookie and hurting his knee again late last year. The team then placed Bawden on injured reserve for the remainder of the season.
In 2019, Bawden appeared in 10 games for the Lions and caught four passes for 17 yards.
