Lions Officially Sign 10 Players To Practice Squad


The Detroit Lions have officially signed 10 players to their practice squad on Sunday.

The full list includes:

  1. DT John Atkins
  2. WR Jonathan Duhart
  3. WR Tom Kennedy
  4. LB Steve Longa
  5. TE Isaac Nauta
  6. T Matt Nelson
  7. LB Anthony Pittman
  8. RB Mark Thompson
  9. TE Austin Traylor
  10. DE Jonathan Wynn

Longa, 24, wound up signing on with the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent out of Rutgers back in 2016. He lasted just a few months in Seattle before he was waived and later signed to the Lions’ practice squad.

Longa bounced on and off of the Lions’ taxi squad in 2017 before returning to Detroit last year on a futures contract. Unfortunately, he was placed on injured reserve during the preseason.

The Lions waived Longa on Saturday.

In 2017, Longa appeared in 15 games for the Lions and recorded 13 tackles.
