Lions Sign Darren Keyton

The Lions have signed center Darren Keyton to a reserve/futures contract, according to Brian McIntyre (via Twitter). Because Keyton didn’t finish the 2013 season on an active NFL roster, he was eligible to sign a reserve deal, which will ensure he’s under contract with the Lions when the new league year begins in March.

Keyton, who attended Central Michigan, went undrafted in 2013 and joined the Lions last spring. After spending training camp and the preseason with Detroit, he was one of the last players cut when the club finalized its regular season roster. It looks like he’ll get another chance to compete for a spot on the roster or at least the practice squad in 2014.

    Solid player. Was surprised they let him go after preseason last year, thought he did well for himself in those finals games especially. Hope he cracks the roster this year.
