DETROIT (AP) — The Detroit Lions have signed cornerback Justin Miller and released linebacker Doug Hogue.
Detroit made the roster moves before playing Monday night on the road against the Chicago Bears.
Miller hasn’t played in the NFL since 2009 when he played in one game for the New York Jets and one with Oakland. Miller had a shot to help Detroit’s weak secondary when the season started, but he was among the Lions’ final cuts Aug. 31.
The Jets drafted Miller in the second round of the 2005 draft and he played in 16 games in each of his first two seasons, making 13 starts without an interception.
Detroit drafted Hogue in the fifth round and he played sparingly in 18 games over two years.
