The Detroit Lions have made a move at wide receiver. On Friday, the team announced it has signed veteran free agent wideout Chad Hansen.

Hansen, 26, played for the Houston Texans in 2020. He hauled in 17 passes for 236 yards and a touchdown in five games, starting two. It was his most prolific season since joining the NFL as a fourth-round pick with the New York Jets in 2017. Hansen played his college ball at California, where his quarterback for most of his Bears tenure was new Lions QB Jared Goff. He has been a frequent offseason workout partner with Goff.

To make room for Hansen, the team cut undrafted rookie Jonathan Adams from Arkansas State.
