Former Clemson LB waived by Lions

Former Clemson LB waived by Lions


by - Assoc. Editor -

The Detriot Lions announced that they have waived linebacker Tre Lamar with an injury exception.

Since he was waived with an injury exception, if he clears waivers, there is a chance that the rookie linebacker could eventually make his way back to the Lions in form of an injury settlement or being placed on the injured reserve.

A former five-star prospect out of Roswell (Ga.), Lamar declared for the draft early after posting 159 tackles and 8 sacks over three seasons (39 games/22 starts).

In 2018 as a junior at Clemson, Lamar was named a Butkus finalist as he had 85 tackles (5.5 for loss), three sacks, an interception and pass breakup over 14 starts.

Update: He has been reverted back to the injured reserve Monday after clearing waivers.
