A little bit of bottom roster shuffle for GM Bob Quinn and the Detroit Lions. The team announced today they waived UDFA CB Des Lawrence and WR Ryan Spadola. Both were dealing with injuries.

In a corresponding move, they added CB Tramain Jacobs and WR Dez Stewart.
“Jacobs (5-11, 193) joins the Lions after most recently spending time with the Canadian Football League’s Toronto Argonauts earlier this year. Prior to the CFL, he saw time with the Oakland Raiders (2016), New York Giants (2015) and Baltimore Ravens (2014).
An undrafted rookie free agent with the Ravens in 2014 out of Texas A&M, Jacobs has appeared in eight career games.
Stewart (6-2, 200) comes to Detroit after signing with the Pittsburgh Steelers earlier this season. He entered the League in 2016 as an undrafted rookie free agent with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers out of Ohio Dominican and has previously spent time with the Washington Redskins and Green Bay Packers during that span.”
Neither of their contract details were disclosed.
Do either push for a 53-man roster spot or just camp bodies? Both players will have their work cut out for them.
