Former Notre Dame tight end Brock Wright has signed with the Detroit Lions.

If that sounds confusing to you because you thought Wright was already a member of the Detroit Lions, you’re not alone.

Wright had been elevated from the Lions practice squad to the active roster for their last two games. A team is only allowed to do that with a player twice per season so when the Lions waived tight end Darren Wells, signing Wright off of their practice squad only made sense.

Wright officially signs with a Lions squad that is still looking for their first win of 2021 and will hit the road for Pittsburgh on Sunday to take on the 5-3 Steelers.
