Lions release 2017 1st-round pick, LB Jarrad Davis

The Detroit Lions are releasing linebacker Jarrad Davis, per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

The No. 21 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft, Davis spent his first four years in the league with the Lions before signing with the New York Jets last offseason. Davis missed all of last year on injured reserve, and returned to Detroit back in March.

Davis, 27, has appeared in 64 career games with 50 starts, tallying 330 tackles, 10.5 sacks, seven forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries.
