Lee didn't do enough in the preseason to convince the Lions to keep around a fourth tight end, but the 2015 undrafted free agent from Bowie State will do just that with the Bills, where he apparently sits behind Charles Clay, Nick O'Leary and Logan Thomas.
Lee was waived by the Lions on Saturday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.
It seems the Lions will roll with three tight ends entering the regular season, where Lee is among the odd men out. Solid in the run game, Lee could be a candidate for the practice squad.
Lee didn't participate in practice Wednesday, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.
The reason behind Lee's absence Wednesday wasn't revealed, but he joined Eric Ebron, Cole Wick and Tim Wright on the sidelines for the session. Given his positioning on the depth chart, a swift return to practice would certainly benefit him.
