Continuing to make adjustments to the roster, the Lions claimed offensive tackle Cliff Louis and released wide receiver Contrevious Parks.
Louis has been in the league since 2007 and has played for many different teams, including the Giants (he's been with them three different times), Cardinals, Jaguars and Browns. He has also played for a team in the UFL and the CFL.
Parks was added to the roster as an undrafted free agent from Stephen F. Austin. Because the Lions have quite a few players at wide receiver, he was expendable, which is why he was let go.
