The Detroit Lions are parting ways with former Michigan State quarterback Connor Cook. The team announced on Monday they waived Cook and safety David Jones after signing two free agents.

Those free agents were offensive lineman Luke Bowanko and quarterback David Fales.

Bowanko is a six-year NFL veteran who has appeared in 47 games with 18 starts. He spent parts of last season with the Washington Redskins. Fales played the last two seasons with the Miami Dolphins and appeared in two games.

The Lions signed Cook in January, but he has only played one season in the NFL with the Oakland Raiders in 2016.
