The Lions have gone to the waiver wire in order to find a replacement quarterback after the team removed Tim Boyle and David Blough.

Detroit announced on Wednesday that they had released Blough and hired the former San Francisco 49ers backup Nate Sudfeld who will act as the backup for Jared Goff.

The Lions are looking to bring Blough back to their practice squad sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Sudfeld 28-year-old Sudfeld was a four-time member of his team the Philadelphia Eagles from 2017 until 2020,

throwing for 188 yards, scoring one touchdown and an interception. The 2021 season was spent with the 49ers and was cut on Tuesday.

Each Boyle and Blough both put on a disappointing performance during the preseason game with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Afterward, Lions coach Dan Campbell claimed he gained "clarity" on the backup quarterback position.

"I think it's what anybody would think for the position, and is it somebody we know can come in and, if something happens,

you know, that they can steer the ship and they can sustain and win some games?" Campbell declared.

If you lose your starter for two or three games, can they win those games for you is what you've got to decide. So that's what we're wrestling with."
