    Team reportedly cutting cornerback Mike Ford

    Cornerback Mike Ford opened training camp working as the nickelback with the first-team defense and closed the preseason with two pass breakups, but it apparently wasn’t enough.

    According to multiple reports, the team has opted to part ways with the top special teams contributor as they whittle the roster down to a final, 53-man limit. 

    Ford took to social media Monday morning, posting a short thank you to Detroit after receiving the news. 

    Signed as an undrafted free agent out of Southeast Missouri State in 2018, Ford has spent his entire three-year career with the Lions. 

    Primarily used on special teams, most notably as a gunner in punt coverage, he’s appeared in 31 games for the Lions during that stretch. That includes seven starts at cornerback, although his defensive playing time has decreased each season.
