Lions Released LB Josh Bynes From I.R. With Injury Designation

The Detriot Lions announced that they’ve released┬áLB Josh Bynes from injured reserve with an injury settlement.

Bynes, 27, wound up signing on with the Ravens as an undrafted free agent out of Auburn back in 2011. He spent just over three years in Baltimore before he was waived and later signed to the Lions’ practice squad at the start of the 2014 season.

Detroit later signed Bynes to a two-year, $1.81 million contract last year. However, he was waived with an injury designation in recent weeks and later reverted to their injured reserve list.

In 2015, Bynes appeared in all 16 games for the Lions and recorded 82 tackles, a half sack, a forced fumble and five pass defenses.
