The Detroit Lions have released defensive end Ronnell Lewis, safety Chris Hope, cornerback Myron Lewis and wide receiver Cody Wilson.
The Lions made the moves Sunday.
Detroit drafted Lewis in the fourth round last year and he played sparingly as a rookie. He pleaded no contest to misdemeanor charges after an arrest at an Oklahoma bar in April.
Lewis became expendable because the...
The Detroit Lions used a fourth-round draft pick on Ronnell Lewis last year.
Rather, they wasted one.
Lewis, an undersized 6-foot-2, 253-pound defensive end, is one of four players released Sunday by the Lions to cut their roster to 80 players. The club must trim down to 75 by Tuesday at 4 p.m.
The other players who failed to make the most recent cut were safety Chris Hope, cornerback...
Myron Lewis the 2010 third-round draft pick who was cut by the Buccaneers last week has landed in Detroit.
A league source tells PFT that the Lions have signed Lewis.
The Lions have been looking for depth in the secondary and improvement on special teams so Lewis makes a lot of sense for them.
In a move made trying to bolster their defensive backfield, the Detroit Lions have signed former Tampa Bay Buccaneers CB Myron Lewis. Lewis is a former third-round selection and was released by the Buccaneers last week. Detroit does have secondary issues but this move should do little to rectify their issues. The move was first reported by PFT.com on Twitter.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have opted to waive DB Myron Lewis after failing miserably to make a positive impression on the organization after having been drafted in the third round in 2010, 67th overall. In corresponding moves, they also waived LB Marvin Booker and signed CB Mason Robinson.

The injury bug does not seem to be leaving the Buccaneers’ locker room anytime soon. The team announced Monday they have placed Myron Lewis on the season ending injured reserve.
The team also announced they have waived wide receiver David Gilreath and were awarded guard Hayworth Hicks off of waiver from Kansas City.
Here is the information from the team:

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers went into last Sunday's season opener against the Carolina Panthers down three cornerbacks. E.J. Biggers, who was Tampa Bay's nickel corner last season, is still nursing a foot injury. Anthony Gaitor injured his hamstring a week ago and still needs time to heal.
But the third corner that was inactive – Myron Lewis – was a healthy scratch....
Cornerback Myron Lewis is as puzzled as anyone about why his career is off to a painfully slow start with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The third-year pro battled nagging injuries that made it a struggle to get on the field the past two seasons, but he's confident he's on the verge of proving the team didn't make a mistake by drafting him in the third round.

Part of the fun about holding a night practice for the general public to come out and watch is that the intensity level gets taken up a notch. Players run a little faster, hit a little harder, and play a little better when thousands of fans are out there cheering them on.
But part of the problem is that the chance for injuries increases as well.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers starting cornerback...
Like any NFL cornerback, Myron Lewis is trying to keep his eyes fixed firmly ahead. The past hasn't been too kind to the former third-round pick who is struggling for playing time with the Buccaneers.
