Lions sign CB Myron Lewis

The Detroit Lions have added a cornerback.

With one preseason game in the books, the Detroit Lions have once again decided to make a couple changes to their roster. The first, as first reported by Pro Football Talk, involves the addition of a cornerback. Specifically, the Lions have signed cornerback Myron Lewis.

Lewis, who was just recently released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, was a third-round draft pick in 2010. He appeared in 28 games for the Buccaneers over the last three seasons, and he made one start. In his career, he only has 19 career tackles and 3 passes defended.

Given the injury issues the Lions have had at cornerback, I'm not too surprised they have decided to add someone with experience like Lewis. Chris Greenwood, Jonte Green and Ron Bartell all missed Friday's game, and there is a quick turnaround with the Lions playing at the Cleveland Browns on Thursday.

The Lions have not announced a corresponding move yet, so it's unclear who will be let go to clear room for Lewis.
