Broyles was waived by the Lions on Monday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.
ANALYSIS
Broyles actually requested his release Saturday and the Lions obliged just a couple days afterwards in an attempt to cut down their roster. The wide receiver is now free to sign with another team, although he's only managed to record 10 total catches over the past two seasons and most likely will only provide depth wherever he ends up.

2012
Broyles is likely down to his final chance with the Lions come the 2015 season. Though he was healthy for the first time in his career, the fourth-year wideout appeared in just five games, totaling only two catches for 25 yards in 2014. Broyles will be a year removed from his ruptured Achilles tendon injury entering training camp so he may be a bit healthier, but it will remain tough for him to factor into the Lions’ offense consistently even if he makes the 53-man roster.
Unlike in 2012, at least Broyles didn't tease a fantasy breakout last season before suffering yet another serious leg injury that ended his season. Golden Tate is now in Detroit to provide a more reliable no. 2 receiver behind Calvin Johnson, so even if Broyles manages to stay healthy for once and still has some tread on his tires despite blowing out both ACLs and tearing an Achilles tendon, his path to significant targets is a lot narrower.
It's a shame Broyles tore his right ACL one week after going off for 126 yards in Week 12 as it had looked for a moment like the Lions had finally found a complement to Calvin Johnson. It wasn't Broyles' first ACL tear, either – he had actually missed the first few weeks of 2012 after tearing the left one during his senior year at college. At 5-10, 192, Broyles isn't big, but he's got decent speed, excellent quickness and good route-running skills. If and when he does return at 100 percent, he's easily the second-best wideout on the team’s roster, and should eventually supplant Nate Burleson, who remains listed as a starter on the Lions' posted depth chart.
It's clear Broyles is an immense talent after an illustrious career at Oklahoma, but a tear of his ACL in November makes his rookie year a serious question mark. He'll open training camp on the PUP list, so expecting an immediate contribution from him would be a serious stretch. Once healthy, however, it's not unreasonable to predict he could make a run at the Lions' No. 2 receiver job.
