Lions claim LB Adrian Moten off waivers

Ron Schwane-USA TODAY Sports

The Detroit Lions have added a linebacker via the waiver wire.

The Detroit Lions' roster is now back at 90 players. After making a few moves earlier in the day, the Lions rounded out their changes to the roster by claiming linebacker Adrian Moten off waivers from the Cleveland Browns.

Moten was just recently released by the Browns. He had been with them since last season, although he didn't play in any games in 2012 for Cleveland. He did make one appearance last year for the Philadelphia Eagles, and he played in 12 total games in 2011 (10 with the Indianapolis Colts and two with the Seattle Seahawks).

Here's a rundown of the four moves the Lions made on Monday:

Signed: CB Brandon King

Claimed: LB Adrian Moten

Released: WR Devin Thomas, LB Alex Elkins

Essentially, the Lions swapped out camp bodies at linebacker and added some depth at cornerback by releasing a camp body at wide receiver.
