Lions release running back Devin Moore

The Detroit Lions have made another roster move by releasing running back Devin Moore.

Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

The Detroit Lions have released running back Devin Moore. This is merely the latest of several changes the Lions have made to their roster in the last couple days, and this particular news was announced on Tuesday afternoon.

Moore originally joined the Lions last season as a member of the practice squad. He was signed to a futures deal after the regular season, but the Lions have decided to move on after drafting running back Theo Riddick and adding undrafted free agent running back Steven Miller. It looks as though those two players will compete for the final spot on the roster at running back behind Reggie Bush, Mikel Leshoure and Joique Bell.

In addition to releasing Moore, the Lions signed former Western Michigan defensive end Freddie Bishop on Tuesday. On Monday, the Lions added former Central Michigan offensive lineman Darren Keyton and released center Skyler Allen.

With the Lions down to 89 players, there is once again an open spot on the roster. Just like on Monday after Allen was released, it's unclear if the Lions are clearing a spot for someone or if they simply decided it was time to release Moore.
