ALLEN PARK, Mich. - The Detroit Lions cut ties with another player in legal troubles, releasing offensive tackle Johnny Culbreath Tuesday.
The move was made to sign veteran tackle Jonathan Scott.
Scott was originally drafted by the Lions in the fifth round of the 2006 NFL Draft. He has since played for the Buffalo Bills and Pittsburgh Steelers.
He started 14 games with the Steelers over the past two seasons, but was released by Pittsburgh July 19 after the Steelers re-signed Max Starks.
Culbreath, a former seventh-round choice by the Lions in the 2011 Draft, was arrested in January for marijuana possession.
Monday, the Lions cut ties with cornerback Aaron Berry, following his second arrest of the offseason.
