Defensive end Kournei Brown lost his job with the Bills on Thursday, but he wasn’t out of work long.

The Lions have claimed Brown off of waivers and added him to their roster. That means they’ll be the next team that Brown hopes to impress enough to get a spot on the 46-man roster for a regular season game.

Brown was with the Bills in training camp last season, but was cut before the regular season started and signed to a reserve/future contract when it came to an end. His departure came shortly after the Bills added veteran Jarius Wynn to their defensive line.

Brown has also spent time with the 49ers and Redskins since entering the NFL as an undrafted free agent out of Clemson in 2012. He may wind up being roster filler in Detroit as well, but will have the rest of the offseason to show that he’s worth a longer look.
