Lions Claim Copeland Bryan, Kevin Hobbs

The mystery of who would fill the two open spots on the roster has been solved, as Tom Kowalski is reporting that the Lions have claimed defensive end Copeland Bryan and cornerback Kevin Hobbs

Bryan was a member of the Bills the last two seasons (he's only been in the league since 2006) and was cut yesterday.  It seems there are quite a few people on Buffalo Rumblings not all that happy with Bryan being let go, though Brian Galliford, who runs the site, is fine with it.

OK, great, but if you guys are seriously of the opinion that Copeland Bryan – a fine, upstanding player with some skill – was the long-term answer at DE… then wow.

Brian is referring to the Bills' situation, obviously.  For the Lions, he is seen as an upgrade over Ikaika Alama-Francis, which is why he is joining the team.

As for Hobbs, he has also only been in the league for a few seasons and was cut yesterday as well.  He played for the Seahawks and had been on and off Seattle's active roster and practice squad.  It looks like Marcus McCauley was claimed to fill Kevin O'Connell's spot on the roster, whereas Hobbs was claimed since he is viewed as an upgrade over Cletis Gordon.
