Detroit Lions Release Cumberland’s Ty Johnson

October 1st, 2020 by WCBC Radio

The Detroit Lions announced today that they have activated S Jayron Kearse from the Exempt/Commissioner Permission list and released RB Ty Johnson.

Johnson was a 6th round pick and saw significant playing time during his rookie year.  He was inactive for last week's game.

Johnson was one of the most productive running backs in University of Maryland history, starring for four seasons after an outstanding high school career at Fort Hill High School.

Johnson could sign with another team and wind up on an active roster, or may wind up on a practice squad.
