Lions add CB Justin Miller before playing Bears

DETROIT (AP) The Detroit Lions have signed cornerback Justin Miller and released linebacker Doug Hogue.

Detroit made the roster moves before playing Monday night on the road against the Chicago Bears.

Miller hasn't played in the NFL since 2009 when he played in one game for the New York Jets and one with Oakland. Miller had a shot to help Detroit's weak secondary when the season started, but he was among the Lions' final cuts Aug. 31.

The Jets drafted Miller in the second round of the 2005 draft and he played in 16 games in each of his first two seasons, making 13 starts without an interception.

Detroit drafted Hogue in the fifth round and he played sparingly in 18 games over two years.

Trea Turner hits for cycle against Rockies for the second time in his career

For the second time in his career, Trea Turner has hit for the cycle against the Rockies. This time, he did it in Nats Park. 

Turner started his day in the first inning with a solo shot to left-center to open the scoring for the Nationals. A fortunate bounce yielded an infield single in the second inning, and he smashed a liner into the right-field corner in the fifth. A double for most players, Turner's trademark speed enabled him to stretch it into a triple.

With a comfortable 8-0 lead in the seventh, Turner sent a 98 mph fastball into the gap in right-center field, completing the cycle and capping off an incredible night for the Nats. 

Turner is the fourth player to hit for the cycle this season, and the 27th since 1908 to do it multiple times in his career

Mark Sanchez makes the jump to ESPN after surviving Josh Norman's Broadcasting Bootcamp

In case you haven't heard, eight-year NFL veteran Mark Sanchez called it a career on Tuesday. He'll move on to television, working with ESPN as a college football analyst.

Former Redskins teammate, albeit briefly, Josh Norman shared his congratulations on Twitter.

According to our records, this is the first Josh Norman Broadcasting Bootcamp attendee to make the jump to ESPN. He is also the only attendee according to our records.

Last season Sanchez played two games in Washington before he suffered a season-ending injury. 

As comical as it was at times to see 'the Sanchize' on the field, he's due to be as entertaining in the booth. As evidenced in the video he has no issue poking fun at himself. Moving to college football goes back to where he had a majority of his success on the gridiron.
