Layne, 23, pleaded guilty to misdemeanor possessing criminal tools in Willoughby Municipal Court. Layne received six months of probation, 32 hours of community service and a $500 fine and was ordered to pay court costs.

Layne, a Cleveland native, was initially pulled over on I-90 going 89 mph in a 60 mph zone last month. During the traffic stop, officers found a loaded pistol. Layne was arrested on suspicion of felony transportation of a firearm inside of a vehicle, according to jail records in Lake County, Ohio. He was also charged with two misdemeanors -- driving with a suspended license and exceeding speed limits.

Layne, who played at Michigan State, was selected by the Steelers in the third round of the 2019 NFL draft and appeared in 16 games last season.The Detroit Lions are releasing running back Kerryon Johnson, according to multiple reports.

Detroit drafted the former Auburn standout in the second round in 2018. Johnson became expendable after the team drafted D'Andre Swift No. 35 overall in 2020, signed free-agent running back Jamaal Williams in March and drafted Oregon State's Jermar Jefferson last week.

Johnson ran for 1,225 yards and eight touchdowns over three seasons. He also has 61 career receptions for 527 yards and three scores.Last year, he had 181 yards rushing and two scores on 52 carries, and had 19 receptions for 187 yards receiving and a touchdown.

NFL Network first reported that Johnson would be waived.The Lions also added a player in free agency, signing tight end Darren Fells on Wednesday. The move gives the team a veteran at the position it can put on the field with Pro Bowl tight end T.J. Hockenson.

The 35-year-old Fells has 123 career catches with 1,483 yards receiving and 21 touchdowns. The previous two years in Houston, he had a combined 55 catches for 653 yards and 11 touchdowns.
