Lions sign Brandon King, release Devin Thomas

Brad Mills-US PRESSWIRE

The Detroit Lions have added a cornerback and released a wide receiver.

The Detroit Lions have announced three roster moves. As mentioned earlier, linebacker Alex Elkins has been released. It turns out that wide receiver Devin Thomas has also been released, and the Lions have signed cornerback Brandon King.

Thomas joined the Lions earlier this year after unretiring. He went into training camp on the PUP list, and he was just activated from it on Sunday. Clearly the Lions don't think he has much of a shot at making the team, so they decided to let him go and move on.

King joins the Lions after most recently spending time with the Jacksonville Jaguars. He was on their practice squad for part of last season, and he was on their active roster this past offseason until the end of February. Before heading to Jacksonville, King spent time with the Indianapolis Colts and played in eight games over two seasons.

With the Lions releasing two players and only signing one, they still have one open roster spot that needs to be filled.
