Lions Sign RB Bo Scarbrough, P Matt Wile To PS, Release LB Anthony Pittman


The Lions announced on Wednesday they have signed RB Bo Scarbrough and P Matt Wile to the practice squad and released LB Anthony Pittman to make room. 

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

  1. TE Isaac Nauta
  2. T Matt Nelson
  3. LB Jason Cabinda
  4. WR Chris Lacy
  5. WR Travis Fulgham
  6. DE Jonathan Wynn
  7. WR Tom Kennedy
  8. RB Wes Hills 
  9. RB Bo Scarbrough
  10. P Matt Wile

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.

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.
