Lions Signing DE Wallace Gilberry

The Detroit Lions are signing veteran DE Wallace Gilberry to a contract on Monday, according to his agency.

Gilberry, 31, wound up signing on with the Giants as an undrafted free agent out of Alabama back in 2008. He lasted just a few months in New York before being signed off of their practice squad by the Chiefs.

Gilberry later caught on with the Buccaneers in 2012 before signing with the Bengals during the 2012 season. Cincinnati elected to bring him back on a three-year deal in 2013.

Last year, Gilberry appeared in all 16 games for the Bengals and recorded 23 tackles, two sacks, a forced fumble and a pass defense.
