Lions Claim Khari Lee Off Waivers

The Lions have claimed tight end Khari Lee off waivers from the Bears, a source tells Adam Schefter of (on Twitter). Khari Lee (vertical)

Lee, 24, was waived by the Bears on Sunday to make room for fellow tight end Logan Paulsen. Last year, Lee appeared in all 16 regular season games for the Bears and even logged seven starts, though his role didn’t involve a ton of pass-catching. On the year, he was targeted just three times and had only one reception for seven yards. However, Lee is known as a strongĀ in-line blocker.

To make room for Lee, the Lions will have to bump one player from the roster. Currently, the Lions have Eric Ebron, Orson Charles, and Cole Wick at tight end on the depth chart.
