TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have traded cornerback Johnthan Banks to the Detroit Lions for a conditional seventh round pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

The team confirmed the move Tuesday, when it also announced the signing of running back Mike James, who was released from the Lions’ practice squad on Oct. 25.

Banks was a second-round draft pick in 2013. He had seven interceptions while starting 37 of 50 games over the past four seasons. He was inactive the past two games after seeing action on special teams the first five weeks of the season.

James was drafted by Tampa Bay in the sixth round in 2013 and appeared in 20 games over three seasons, rushing for 332 yards. He spent the preseason with the Bucs before being waived/injured on Sept. 14. Detroit signed him to its practice squad on Oct. 3.
