Report: Lions Releasing G Leroy Harris

Aaron Wilson, citing a league source, reports that the Detroit Lions are releasing G Leroy Harris on Monday.

  • Dave Birkett mentions that this move seemed inevitable as the Lions are looking to add a younger backup center to their roster.

Harris, 29, had a $100,000 roster bonus due on March 15 and was set to make $1.85 million for the 2014 season. His cap figure for next season was $2.062 million, but the Lions will now free up $1.95 million in cap space following his release, according to

He spent his first six season in the NFL with the Titans before signing a two-year deal with Detroit back in June of last year. He appeared in just one game last season, so makes sense that the Lions would take the cap savings and move on.
