The Detroit Lions filled a couple vacant roster spots earlier today after the release of safety Taylor Mays and receiver Jared Haggins on Saturday.
Former Bethune-Cookman Defensive end Erik Williams and linebacker Justin Cherocci (Central Michigan) have been added to the roster.
Williams recorded 33 tackles, 15 tackles for loss and 6.5 sacks for Bethune-Cookman last season.
The 6-3, 270-pound Williams, who spent time with the Buffalo Bills in the offseason, is the son of Lee Williams, an 11-year NFL veteran who played for the San Diego Chargers and Houston Oilers.
Williams will wear number 67 while Cherocci will wear 51.
