The Detroit Lions made a trade Tuesday to acquire Jacksonville receiver/return specialist Mike Thomas in an exchange for an undisclosed draft pick.


The deal is pending on Thomas passing a physical with the Lions. To make room on the roster, the club released cornerback Justin Miller.


Thomas, a fourth-round draft pick in 2009, has 13 catches for 80 yards and no touchdowns in seven games with the Jaguars. He also averaged seven yards on eight punt returns and 17 yards on two kick returns.


The Lions play at Jacksonville Sunday.
