Lions waived WR Ryan Broyles.
Broyles reportedly asked for his release after not getting many looks this preseason. A 2012 second-round pick out of Oklahoma, Broyles' career has been derailed by two ACL surgeries and a torn Achilles'. Those injuries have taken their toll on Broyles, who reportedly lacked explosiveness this offseason. He may get a look from someone, but it appears his career is nearing the end.

Date:

The Lions' official website said WR Ryan Broyles has lost some of his explosiveness.

After two ACL surgeries and a torn Achilles', it is not surprising Broyles is not the same player he was at Oklahoma. Broyles is not expected to make the Lions' final roster, and he could be nearing the end of his career. He is not worth stashing in Dynasty formats.

Ryan Broyles isn’t expected to make the Lions 53-man roster.

Broyles has been active for just 11 games the last two years. His career has been derailed by two ACL surgeries and a torn Achilles. Beat reporter Tim Twentyman expects the Lions to keep Jeremy Ross and Lance Moore behind Calvin Johnson, Golden Tate, and Corey Fuller.

Lions GM Martin Mayhew says Ryan Broyles can earn playing time by "tearing it up" at OTAs.

Broyles fell off the map last season in large part because of the emergence of Golden Tate. For Broyles to get back on the Lions' radar, he will need to play exceptionally well at OTAs. If that doesn't happen, Broyles may not get another chance unless someone gets hurt. The 26-year-old is entering the final year of his rookie contract.

The Detroit Free Press believes Ryan Broyles is down to his last chance to make the Lions this offseason.

Broyles, the 54th pick in the 2012 draft, tore his ACL as a rookie and ruptured his Achilles' as a sophomore before being active for only five games this past season. He caught just two passes for 25 yards as the No. 5 receiver. Broyles will turn 27 in April. He's not even worth holding onto in deeper Dynasty leagues.

Lions declared WR Ryan Broyles, CB Cassius Vaughn, LB Travis Lewis, QB Kellen Moore, S James Ihedigbo, OT LaAdrian Waddle and RB Montell Owens inactive for Week 3 against the Packers.

It's a quiet list for Detroit, who enters Week 3 as one of the league's healthier teams. Broyles has now been a healthy scratch for all three games this season.
Sun, Sep 21, 2014 11:33:00 AM

Lions declared WR Ryan Broyles, WR Kevin Ogletree, DB Don Carey, QB Kellen Moore, DE Larry Webster, S James Ihedigbo, and OT LaAdrian Waddle inactive for Week 2 against the Panthers.

The Lions will continue to play heavy two-tight end offense with two wide receivers. Broyles and Ogletree have both been active for each of Detroit's first two games. With Ihedigbo still out, the Lions will continue to start special teamer Isa Abdul-Quddus at safety opposite Glover Quin.

Lions declared WR Ryan Broyles, WR Kevin Ogletree, S James Ihedigbo, DB Don Carey, QB Kellen Moore, DE Larry Webster, and OT Cornelius Lucas inactive for Week 1 against the Giants.

With Broyles and Ogletree both inactive, the Lions may turn to Corey Fuller as their No. 3 receiver behind Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate. Jeremy Ross could also see some snaps on offense.

Ryan Broyles caught three passes for 44 yards in the Lions' third preseason game Friday night

Broyles worked exclusively with the second- and third-team offenses, playing behind Kevin Ogletree and Kris Durham. He's now led the Lions in receiving in consecutive weeks and should have the inside track on a roster spot. Broyles isn't on the re-draft radar, although he's a candidate to move up the depth chart eventually. Seven of his eight preseason receptions have gone for first downs.
Sat, Aug 23, 2014 12:19:00 AM

Ryan Broyles caught two passes for 42 yards in the Lions' second preseason game Friday night.

Broyles showed nice open-field ability, turning a two-yard pass into a 34-yard gain late in the first half. He now has a team-high 69 yards receiving on five catches this preseason. Finally healthy, Broyles is making a strong push for a roster spot in Detroit.
Sat, Aug 16, 2014 12:26:00 PM

Lions WR Ryan Broyles caught three passes for 27 yards in Saturday night's preseason opener.

He secured all three of his targets. An Achilles' rupture and two ACL tears have cost Broyles some explosiveness, but he remains a sure-handed slot receiver who should make Detroit's final 53 as the No. 4 or 5 wideout.
Sun, Aug 10, 2014 11:02:00 AM

Ryan Broyles has been working with a speed coach this summer.

Broyles has suffered two ACL tears and a torn Achilles' the past three years. The Detroit Free Press observed during the spring that Broyles didn't look as explosive as he did in college. That's to be expected. His explosion has been sapped by injuries. He still appears to be the favorite for No. 3 receiver duties, but isn't really on the fantasy radar outside of deeper PPR leagues.
Sun, Jul 6, 2014 11:50:00 AM

According to the Detroit Free Press, third-year WR Ryan Broyles is "not as explosive" as he was before tearing both of his ACLs, and his Achilles'.

This is to be expected. Whether Broyles regains his college burst is totally up in the air, but beat writer Dave Birkett hints Broyles may still have the inside track on the Lions' No. 3 receiver job, ahead of Kris Durham and return man Jeremy Ross. Broyles' lead was strengthened following rookie T.J. Jones' shoulder surgery. Broyles is worth a look in particularly deep PPR leagues.
Wed, Jun 25, 2014 08:56:00 PM

Ryan Broyles (Achilles') says he is not limited in any way.

Broyles has torn both of his ACLs and his Achilles' tendon since his senior year at Oklahoma. Still, he's remarkably fighting for a roster spot and has been participating in offseason work since April. We'll find out if Broyles' legs are NFL-ready once training camp rolls around.
Wed, Jun 11, 2014 10:26:00 AM

Lions WR Ryan Broyles (Achilles') is "closing in on a full recovery", and participated in OTAs this week.

He practiced at receiver and kickoff returner. "I'm getting right, man," Broyles insisted. "I really am." In training camp, Broyles will try to hold off rookie T.J. Jones to be Detroit's No. 3 receiver, behind Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate. Kevin Ogletree, Kris Durham, and Corey Fuller are also in the mix.
