ALLEN PARK, MICH. (AP) - The Detroit Lions have made a roster move to clear space for top draft pick Ndamukong Suh.

Detroit released defensive tackle Leger Douzable on Wednesday to make room for Suh. The Lions also released safety Marquand Manuel on Wednesday and signed safety Randy Phillips.

Phillips made seven interceptions in his career at Miami. He was a team leader for the Hurricanes last year in his fifth season after having knee surgery two years ago as a senior. Phillips has 18 siblings and is from Belle Glade, Fla.

Manuel started in six games for the Lions last season. He’s also played for Denver, Green Bay, Carolina, Seattle and Cincinnati. Douzable played in 12 games last year for the St. Louis Rams.
