The Detroit Lions haven't made any changes to their 53-man roster so far this week, but they did alter their practice squad on Tuesday evening. Specifically, they swapped defensive tackles by releasing Lorenzo Washington and signing Jimmy Saddler-McQueen.
Saddler-McQueen has been in the NFL since 2010 and has played for several teams. In 2010, as an undrafted free agent out of Texas A&M-Kingsville, he signed with the Chicago Bears. After being let go that summer, he was picked up by the Dallas Cowboys. He then ended up on the St. Louis Rams before returning to the Cowboys. He later returned to the Rams and then had another stint with the Cowboys in 2011.
Earlier in 2012, Saddler-McQueen spent time in the Arena Football League and also was with the Houston Texans. Now he is a member of the Lions practice squad.
Washington joined the Lions at the start of September when they first assembled their practice squad. He had actually been out of football for a year or so before joining the Lions practice squad. Now he is once again on the open market.
