Lions Sign DT Ishmaa’ily Kitchen, Cut DL Phillip Hunt

The Lions have signed DT Ishmaa’ily Kitchen to a contract on Thursday, according to Michael Rothstein.

  • To make room for Kitchen, Rothstein adds that the Lions are releasing DL Phillip Hunt.

Detroit worked out a number of defensive linemen this week including: Kitchen, Joe Vellano, Kenrick Ellis, and Jerel Worthy.

Kitchen, 27, originally signed on with the Ravens as an undrafted free agent out of Kent State back in 2012. He lasted just a few months with the Ravens before he was cut at the start of the 2012 season and later claimed by the Browns.

Kitchen wound up re-signing with the Browns as a restricted free agent this past May, but was unfortunately among the team’s roster cuts over a month ago.

In 2014, Kitchen appeared in 12 games and recorded 43 tackles for the Browns.
