The Detroit Lions are releasing Kerryon Johnson.

The running back was a second-round pick in 2018. He became somewhat expendable when the Lions drafted D'Andre Swift at No. 35 in 2020.

Johnson ran for 1,225 yards and eight touchdowns over three seasons. He also has 61 career receptions for 527 yards and three scores.

Last year, he had 181 yards rushing and two scores on 52 carries, and had 19 receptions for 187 yards receiving and a touchdown.
