Lions sign former Western Michigan DE Freddie Bishop

USA TODAY Sports

The Detroit Lions have added former Western Michigan defensive end Freddie Bishop to their roster.

The Detroit Lions are once again back to 90 players on their roster. They filled the lone opening on Tuesday by signing former Western Michigan defensive end Freddie Bishop, according to Tim Twentyman.

If Bishop's name sounds familiar, it's because he took part in the Lions' pre-draft workout for local players. Not only did he play college football at Western Michigan, but he's from Inkster, and now he's getting a chance to play for his hometown NFL team.

This move comes after the Lions signed former Central Michigan offensive lineman Darren Keyton on Monday. The Lions released Ohio center Skyler Allen as well, and with Bishop now on the roster, the list of undrafted free agents for 2013 is back to 12 players.

  • QB Alex Carder (Western Michigan)
  • RB Steven Miller (Appalachian State)
  • WR Cody Wilson (Central Michigan)
  • TE Joseph Fauria (UCLA)
  • OT Austin Holtz (Ball State)
  • OT LaAdrian Waddle (Texas Tech)
  • OG Darren Keyton (Central Michigan)
  • DE Freddie Bishop (Western Michigan)
  • DT Michael Brooks (East Carolina)
  • LB Jon Morgan (Albany)
  • LB Alex Elkins (Oklahoma State)
  • S Martavius Neloms (Kentucky)
