Lions Sign Five Players To Futures Deals

The Detroit Lions announced Monday that they’ve signed five players to future/reserve contracts for the 2019 season.

The full list of futures signings includes:

  1. WR Deontez Alexander
  2. LB Garret Dooley
  3. S David Jones
  4. OL Jarron Jones
  5. DE Jonathan Wynn

Alexander wound up signing on with the Lions as an undrafted free agent out of Franklin back in May. He agreed to a three-year, $1.71 million contract with the Lions, but was unfortunately waived with an injury designation during the preseason and later reverted to their injured reserve list.

The Lions waived Alexander from injured reserve with a settlement soon after and was on and off of the team’s practice squad.

During his two years at Franklin, Alexander caught 114 passes for 2,133 yards receiving to go along with 33 touchdowns over the course of 21 games.
