Tom Kennedy and Brock Wright are officially back with the Detroit Lions. Kennedy and Wright signed their exclusive rights free agent contract tender offers on Monday when they arrived in Detroit for this week’s offseason workouts.

Kennedy, a wide receiver and special teamer, and backup TE Wright were both exclusive rights free agents. The Lions made them the required offer to keep them, a one-year deal at the veteran minimum. If they finish the season with Detroit, Kennedy and Wright will be restricted free agents following the 2022 season.

Kennedy played in 12 games in 2021, seeing action on 20 percent of the offensive snaps. The former collegiate lacrosse player from Bryant caught six passes for 54 yards.

Wright emerged as the No. 2 TE for the Lions as an undrafted rookie out of Notre Dame in 2021. He caught 12 passes for 117 yards and scored two TDs.
