Dominik Eberle: Cut by Detroit
The Lions waived Eberle on Tuesday.
Signed off the practice squad last Saturday, Eberle served as the Lions' kicker in an eventual 48-45 loss to the Seahawks in Week 4 while top option Austin Seibert (groin) was sidelined. Even in the NFL's highest-scoring game of the season, Eberle came away with only five points, as he missed two of his four extra-point tries while knocking down a 49-yard field-goal attempt. Seibert's status is uncertain for the Lions' Week 5 game at New England, but the team evidently didn't deem Eberle a dependable fill-in option if a replacement kicker is required again....
