Lions Activate CBs Corey Ballentine & Nickell Robey-Coleman From COVID-19 List

The Detroit Lions announced Thursday that they’ve activated practice squad CBs Corey Ballentine and Nickell Robey-Coleman from the COVID-19 list.

Robey-Coleman, 29, wound up signing on with the Bills as an undrafted free agent out of USC back in 2013. He managed to make the 53-man roster during his rookie season and received a two-year extension in 2015.

However, the Bills cut him loose in 2017 and he later signed a one-year contract with the Rams. From there, Robey-Coleman agreed to a three-year contract worth more than $15.75 million in 2018.

Los Angeles declined to pick up Robey-Coleman’s option last year and he eventually signed on with the Eagles. From there, he joined the Lions in August and was later added to their practice squad. 

In 2020, Robey-Coleman appeared 15 games for the Eagles and recorded 44 tackles, no interceptions, a forced fumble, a recovery and one pass deflection.
