Lions sign RB George Winn

Stew Milne-USA TODAY Sports

The Detroit Lions have added free-agent running back George Winn to their roster.

After the Detroit Lions wrapped up their offseason training program last month, they also seemingly finalized their roster for training camp. Teams usually continue tinkering with their roster even in the quietest of times in the summer, but the Lions went more than a month without a single move.

On Wednesday, that streak came to an end, as the Lions did make a move by signing running back George Winn.

Winn, who is from Southfield, Mich., and went to Cincinnati, has played for several teams. He joined the Houston Texans after going undrafted in 2013, and he later spent time with the New England Patriots. He then bounced around the practice squads of the Oakland Raiders, Pittsburgh Steelers and Dallas Cowboys. With the Lions, he's likely going to just be a camp body at running back.

Since the Lions already have 90 players on their roster, somebody will have to be released to make room for Winn, but the identity of that player is currently unknown.

UPDATE: The Lions released offensive guard D.J. Morrell to make room for Winn.
