Lions Activate DT Darius Kilgo From NFI List, Sign CB Tarvarus McFadden

The Detroit Lions announced Sunday that they’ve signed CB Tarvarus McFadden and placed WR Deontez Alexander on waivers.

The Lions also activated DT Darius Kilgo from the non-football injury list.

Kilgo, 27, is a former sixth-round pick of the Broncos back in 2015. He was in the second year of his four-year, $2,391,556 contract when the Broncos cut him loose during the 2016 season.

The Patriots later claimed him off of waivers and he was on and off of their practice squad the past few years before the Jaguars signed him to their practice squad soon after.

From there, Kilgo signed a futures contract with the Texans before catching on with the Titans last year.  The Lions signed Kilgo to a contract this past May. 

In 2018, Kilgo appeared in 11 games for the Titans and recorded five tackles and no sacks.
