Lions Waive Richard Dickson, Sign Korey Bosworth

The Detroit Lions made two moves this morning:

  • Richard Dickson, an undrafted tight end from LSU, was waived/injured. He hurt his knee against the Steelers, and it apparently is serious enough for the Lions to momentarily part ways with him. If he clears waivers, the Lions should be able to put him on injured reserve, but there's no guarantee that will happen.
  • Taking Dickson's spot on the roster is undrafted UCLA defensive end Korey Bosworth. He is the nephew of Brian Bosworth and was a member of the Broncos earlier in the offseason. Bosworth played linebacker for the Broncos, but it appears he will be a defensive end for the Lions.
