Cleveland claimed Lemonier, a former Niner, off waivers leading up to Week 1. The 2013 third-round pick went on to tally eight tackles and two sacks in eight appearances (one start) prior to his release.

Lemonier first broke into the league as a third-round pick of the Niners. Unfortunately, that pick didn’t really pan out for Trent Baalke. The Auburn product was mainly a special teamer for San Francisco from 2013-2015. He didn’t really turn over a new leaf with Cleveland this year, but he’ll try and get something going in Detroit.
