Lions Waived/Injured DE Brandon Copeland, Sign Three Including OL Connor Bozick,


The Detroit Lions announced Wednesday that they’ve signed OL Connor Bozick, TE Andrew Price and DE Giorgio Newberry to contracts.

Should Copeland pass through waivers unclaimed, he would revert to the team’s injured reserve list on Thursday.

Copeland, 26, originally signed on with the Ravens as an undrafted free agent out of Pennsylvania back in 2013. He lasted just a few months with the team before he was waived and later caught on with the Titans during his rookie season.

After a year in Tennessee, Copeland signed a one-year contract with the Lions and returned to Detroit this past April on a one-year, $615,000 exclusive rights contract.

In 2016, Copeland appeared in all 16 games for the Lions and recorded 16 tackles, no sacks and a forced fumble.

Bozick, 22, originally signed on with the Lions as an undrafted free agent out of Delaware this offseason. Detroit, unfortunately, decided to waive him back in June to make room for OT Tony Hills.

During his five-year college career at Delaware, Bozick was a two-time All-CAA honoree as an offensive lineman. He appeared in 46 career games and started 24 consecutive games to finish his college career.
