The Detroit Lions must establish their 53-man roster ahead of the start of the 2021 season by the 4 p.m. deadline this upcoming Tuesday. 

Head coach Dan Campbell and general manager Brad Holmes will meet over the course of this weekend to review the roster and to determine who will be the remaining players to fill out the depth chart.

"There will be a couple of things that we’ll just sort out just between the two of us, but I’m telling you we’re not going to have any problem," Campbell said following Fridays preseason finale. "He and I see -- we see things so very much alike in a good way. Even though we are kind of different people, but yet there are things that we believe to our core as it pertains to who we are, what we’re about, but also this team. That goes a long way. We’re going to come out of this with the best 53 and the best practice squad we can get. I think it’s going to come down -- I’m not sure you will see very much until Monday, if I’m being honest with you.”

Detroit will need to make 27 more roster cuts by the deadline, as the roster currently sits at 80 players.
