Lions Sign P Jack Fox To Practice Squad, Release P Matt Wile

The Lions announced they have released P Matt Wile from the practice squad and replaced him with P Jack Fox

Here’s an updated look at Detroit’s practice squad: 

  1. T Matt Nelson
  2. WR Travis Fulgham
  3. DE Jonathan Wynn
  4. WR Tom Kennedy
  5. RB Wes Hills
  6. OT Dan Skipper
  7. QB Joe Callahan
  8. WR Victor Bolden
  9. TE Cole Herdman
  10. P Jack Fox

Wile, 27, originally signed on with the Panthers as an undrafted free agent out of Michigan back in 2015. He bounced on and off their roster until signing with the Cowboys during the 2016 offseason.

Wile lasted six months in Dallas before having brief stints with the Falcon, Cardinals and Steelers. The Vikings claimed him off of waivers at the start of last year before cutting him loose at the start of the season. 

The Falcons signed Wile to their practice squad and he’s bounced on and off Atlanta’s roster while they’ve dealt with punter injuries before being released himself with a settlement a few weeks ago.

Wile has bounced on and off Detroit’s practice squad a couple times this season.

In 2019, Wile has appeared in two games for the Falcons and recorded six punts for 290 yards (48.3 average), no touchbacks and three kicks inside the 20.
