Detroit Lions Sign Corey Wootton Release Skye Dawson

Yesterday, the Detroit Lions released receiver Skye Dawson from their 90 man roster.  The move dropped them from 90 players to 89 players which was a bit odd.  The move they made today explains why it was done.  They signed defensive end Corey Wootton to a 1 year deal.  They needed another defensive end to replace George Johnson and Wootton just might be that guy.  He played for the Minnesota Vikings last season and has the size, 6’6 270lbs, and the versatility (plays defensive tackle and defensive end) that the Lions like.  He will likely make the team given the lack of depth on the defensive line right now, but he is in competition like everyone else.
