The Ravens are losing the man who made the final tackle of Super Bowl XLVII.

Inside linebacker Josh Bynes, who was waived before joining the practice squad before the regular-season opener, is likely to join the Detroit Lions' 53-man roster, according to The Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson.

Bynes was a surprise cut after making the initial 53-man roster out of the preseason. He hasn't had the opportunity to move up back to the 53-man roster since joining the practice squad.

If Bynes does in fact join the Lions, he'll reunite with head coach Jim Caldwell and defensive coordinator Teryl Austin. Caldwell was Baltimore's offensive coordinator a year ago and Austin was the defensive backs coach with the Ravens the previous three seasons.
