Lions cutting Tim Boyle

Matthew Berry and Connor Rogers answer one burning fantasy football question per team in the NFC North, including what is Aaron Rodgers' floor without Davante Adams?

After Sunday’s preseason game, Lions coach Dan Campbell was asked what he had seen from backup quarterbacks Tim Boyle and David Blough in the team’s search for a backup quarterback.

“It became very clear,” Campbell said, via Eric Woodyard of ESPN. “I think we got things answered. I’ll leave it at that.”

Campbell might have meant the Lions need to look outside the organization for a backup. Neither Blough nor Boyle won the job.

But Boyle for sure has lost it.

The Lions are cutting Boyle, NFL Media reports. His release will save the Lions $1.75 million against the cap.

Boyle started Sunday and went 5-of-15 64 yards and an interception, getting pulled after throwing the pick.

The only question now is: Will the Lions keep Blough as the backup to Jared Goff?
