The Lions announced Tuesday they have signed five players to futures deals.
The full list includes:
- WR Victor Bolden
- G Evan Brown
- S Jalen Elliott
- WR Tom Kennedy
- LB Anthony Pittman
Futures deals are essentially camp invites that will give players the opportunity to compete for roster spots during offseason workouts and training camp.
Pittman, 24, signed on with the Lions as an undrafted free agent out of Wayne State in 2019. He was among their final roster cuts coming out of the preseason and was added to their practice squad once passing through waivers unclaimed.
Since then, Pittman has been on and off the Lions’ practice squad.
During his college career, Pittman recorded 181 total tackles, 31.5 tackles for loss and eight sacks.
