The Lions also waived S Jeremiah Dinson.

Okwara, 25, originally signed on with the Giants as an undrafted free agent out of Notre Dame back in 2016. He is in the final year of a three-year, $1.62 million contract when the Giants waived him coming out of the preseason in 2018. 

The Lions later claimed Okwara off of waivers and he finished out the year in Detroit. He later re-signed with the Lions on a two-year deal. 

In 2019, Okwara appeared in 14 games for the Lions and recorded 28 tackles, 1.5 sacks and a forced fumble.
