Lions Sign 12 UDFAs

As teams’ classes of undrafted free agents continue to be announced, the Lions have confirmed their group of signings. Here is their list of UDFAs:

The team’s two largest commitments were amongst the offensive linemen in the group. PFF’s Doug Kyed reports (on Twitter) that Eze is receiving $170K in guaranteed money. The Memphis transfer has the size (six-foot-eight, 315 pounds) to at least compete for a place at the end of the roster on an NFL team. Jarvis, likewise, is set for notable compensation; the former Spartan will earn $155K in total guarantees, per Aaron Wilson of Pro Football Network (Twitter link).

On the offensive side of the ball, Bell and Deese stand out in terms of contract details. In a pair of tweets, Wilson details that each of them will earn $100K in guaranteed money. A Nebraska transfer, Bell played two seasons with the Aztecs, recording over 1,000 scrimmage yards and nine rushing touchdowns in 2021. Deese also enjoyed a career year this past season, totalling 47 receptions for 730 yards and four touchdowns. Each will compete for depth roles behind entrenched starters D’Andre Swift and T.J. Hockenson at their respective positions.
