Report: Recent players Lions Waived…

The Detroit Lions announced they have waived TE Anthony Firkser. 

The team needs to create some roster space for players coming off injured reserve. 

Firkser, 28, originally signed on with the Jets as an undrafted free agent out of Harvard back in 2017. He lasted just a few months in New York before he was waived and later signed to the Chiefs’ practice squad.

Kansas City brought Firkser back on a futures contract in 2018 only to release him shortly after the draft. He later caught on with the Titans and returned to Tennessee on a one-year contract in back-to-back years before joining the Falcons last year. 

Atlanta released him coming out of the preseason and he was on and off of their roster from there. He had a stint on the Patriots practice squad before landing with the Lions this season. 

In 2022, Firkser appeared in 11 games for the Falcons and caught nine passes on 100 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
