Lions Sign OT Cyrus Kouandjio, Cut Two

The Detroit Lions announced Thursday that they’ve signed OT Cyrus Kouandjio to a contract and placed LS Jimmy Landes and OT Arturo Uzdavinis.

The Lions previously hosted Kouandijo for a visit, so he was clearly on their radar as a potential addition.

Kouandijo is coming off of a hip injury and was involved in a strange incident in which he was found by police “not fully clothed” in a field after climbing over an electric fence.

Kouandjio, 23, is a former second-round pick of the Bills back in 2014. He was in the final year of his four-year, $4.808 million contract that included $2.825 million guaranteed and was set to make a base salary of $1,025,748 for the 2017 season when the Bills waived him two weeks ago.

In 2016, Kouandjio appeared in 12 games for the Bills.

We had him featured in our Top 50 Available Free Agents list.
