ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — The Detroit Lions have released defensive back Lionel Smith.

The move was announced Monday.

Team officials declined to confirm reports the Lions have agreed to a deal with offensive guard Leroy Harris. The Lions have been looking for a veteran guard since releasing Stephen Peterman in February.

Harris was a three-year starter for the Tennessee Titans, but he was sidelined last November by a right knee injury. The Titans drafted him out of North Carolina State in the fourth round in 2007 and he started in 39 games the last three years for them.

Smith was on Detroit’s practice squad last year after being among the Dallas Cowboys final cuts as an undrafted free agent from Texas A&M.
