Lions claimed DT Corvey Irvin off waivers from the Panthers.
Irvin never panned out as a 2009 third-round pick in Carolina, but the Lions likely had a high draft grade on him coming out of Georgia. Irvin will be given a shot to be Detroit's fourth defensive tackle until Nick Fairley gets healthy.

Panthers waived DT Corvey Irvin, DT Nick Hayden, CB Kendric Burney, OL John Gianninoto, DE Malcolm Tatum, WR Darvin Adams, and DT Deljuan Robinson.
