Congratulations to Detroit Lions rookie tight end Hunter Bryant! The undrafted free agent from Washington pulled down his first career reception in the Lions’ Week 15 matchup with the Tennessee Titans. And it’s worthy of the highlight reel.

Bryant made a nice move to create some space for himself and a throwing lane for quarterback Matthew Stafford. No. 9 delivered a picture-perfect throw, hitting Bryant on the hands on the dead run down the seam.

Look at the soft hands Bryant shows in snatching the ball from the air just before taking a hit. The big rookie shook off the first tackle attempt and tacked on several extra yards, too. The play gained 44 yards and set up the Lions in the Titans’ red zone.
