The Detroit Lions have released defensive end Trey Flowers after spending three seasons with the team.

Flowers originally signed a five-year, $90 million contract with Detroit in March of 2019.

In his three seasons with the club, Flowers totaled 10.5 sacks, 97 tackles, 12 tackles for loss, and 27 QB hits.

 The move by the Lions clears $10.386 million in cap space, although it leaves behind more than that in dead money.

The 28-year-old was solid on the field for Detroit, but he battled injuries over the last two seasons which caused him to miss 19 games.

Flowers will now test free agency for a team in need of his services.
