Detroit Lions Sign Tight End Jacob Maxwell

The Detroit Lions announced today that they have filled their last open roster spot by signing Jacob Maxwell.  The young tight end was with the team earlier but cut due to needing depth at another position.  This time around, the Lions have injuries at tight end and needed to bring someone in.  Maxwell, having familiarity with the team already, seemed like the logical choice.  Given that their first pre-season game is Thursday, I would expect to see Maxwell get a few snaps so that Fauria does not have to take many and can rest.
