    If he can play for the Lions, why did Cincy give him that injury release? Regardless, glad he landed somewhere.

    I'm sure the deal is he has an injury. It's not that bad. But you can't just release an injured player. Either Cincy wanted to move on or Driskel didn't want to spend the season on IR...or Both. So they do an injury settlement and part ways. Works out for Jeff as he gets some cash in his pocket and it looks like he's going to slide right in as the top backup to Stafford.
