Detroit Lions: Ex-Rams LB Rocky McIntosh signed

Linebacker Rocky McIntosh has been signed by the Detroit Lions.

Expect McIntosh, who played in 2012 with the St. Louis Rams, to serve as a backup and see plenty of time on special teams. He started nine games last year and played in all 16.

McIntosh spent the first six seasons of his NFL career with the Washington Redskins after they drafted him in the second round in 2006 out of Miami. From 2007-2010 he was a starter.

Ashlee Palmer is likely to start alongside Stephen Tulloch and DeAndre Levy.

McIntosh was the third defensive signing in two days. On Friday the Lions signed two defensive tackles — John Drew and Justin Bannon.

The Lions released Adrian Moten to create room on the 90-man roster.

Following the 24-6 preseason loss on Thursday at Cleveland, the Lions return to the practice field today. They play the New England Patriots on Thursday at Ford Field.
