Atkins announced he would opt of the season Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Lions' John Atkins: Logs two tackles in rookie year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Atkins recorded two tackles in two games for Detroit in 2018.

Atkins went undrafted out of Georgia last offseason and found his way to Detroit after spending the majority of the year with New England. He isn't much of a threat as a pass rusher, but he could develop into a quality early-down run-stuffer down the road.
