Lions release Braylon Broughton, Conroy Black

Ed Szczepanski-US PRESSWIRE

The Detroit Lions have released a pair of players to make room for their two new defensive tackles.

It's official: John Drew and Justin Bannan are now members of the Detroit Lions. To make room for the two new defensive tackles, the Lions decided to release defensive end Braylon Broughton and cornerback Conroy Black.

Broughton joined the Lions back in June. The Lions actually claimed him off waivers a couple weeks earlier, but he failed his physical and was released. He passed his physical the second time around when the Lions decided to add him again, but he was really just a camp body.

Black was also a camp body, and he actually spent only a few days with the Lions in his latest stint with the team. He signed with them on Tuesday this week, and now he is once again a free agent. He was also released by the team back in May.

With the Lions releasing a defensive end and a cornerback to make room for Drew and Bannan, they now have a total of nine defensive tackles on their roster.
