Detroit Lions Sign Greg Banks, Release Jack Williams, Korey Bosworth

In addition to releasing linebacker Zack Follett, the Detroit Lions made a few other roster moves on Wednesday. As alluded to in today's notes post, former Michigan defensive end Greg Banks, an undrafted free agent, signed with the team. Also, linebacker Korey Bosworth and cornerback Jack Williams were released.

Williams was originally claimed by the Lions in November 2009. He tore his ACL on his first ever play with the Lions and had spent the greater part of the last two years trying to come back from the injury. Last year he spent part of the season on the PUP list and eventually went on injured reserve. This training camp he started off fine, but after missing the last couple of practices the Lions decided to release him.

Bosworth was signed last August and was put on injured reserve after breaking his leg. He is now a free agent after being let go by the Lions.

Dave Birkett reports that the Lions worked out offensive lineman Isaac Sowells, who most recently played in the UFL. Sowells was expecting to sign with Detroit this afternoon, which would make sense given how many players were released today. No announcement has been made just yet, though.
