Wide receiver Jared Karstetter isn't the only former Washington State player set to join the Detroit Lions. The Lions have also signed former Washington State defensive end Brandon Rankin, according to the following tweet.

Rankin started the final nine games of the 2011 season for Washington State and received an All-Pac-12 honorable mention. He had 20 tackles and 2.5 sacks in the 12 games he appeared in for the Cougars.
