The Detroit Lions have made a decision on their backup quarterback spot.

Detroit released Tim Boyle Monday night, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelicero.

Boyle was competing with David Blow for the No. 2 job after Jared Goff.

Presumably, Blow earned the position, at least for now.

The Lions may still want to upgrade to that spot before or after the final roster cut around the league tomorrow afternoon.

Boyle, who started his NFL career with the Green Bay Packers in 2019,

Appeared in five games for the Lions in 2021, making three starts.

UConn and the Eastern Kentucky Product completed 61-in-94 passes for 526 yards, three touchdowns, and six interceptions.

He and Blow were both not impressive this summer,

This makes it possible that the Lions' backup quarterback for 2022 is not yet with the team.
