SHARE Lions claim DeAngelo Smith off Bears’ practice squad

The Detroit Lions have placed veteran safety Marquand Manuel on injured reserve today and signed defensive back DeAngelo Smith off of the Bears’ practice squad.

Smith was claimed off waivers from the Cleveland Browns in September, and then he was released and added to the practice squad. This will be his fourth organization as he was drafted by Dallas in April.

The Bears have had an opportunity to promote one of their own for five weeks now with linebacker Pisa Tinoisamoa out for the season with a knee injury. The club has not placed him on injured reserve. So, the deduction you can make here is they really didn’t want to hang on to Smith that badly.
