Lions Sign TE Jordan Thomas To Futures Deal

The Detroit Lions announced they signed TE Jordan Thomas to a reserve/futures deal on Tuesday.

The Lions updated list of futures signings now includes:

  1. DE Eric Banks
  2. LB Tavante Beckett
  3. DE Bruce Hector
  4. WR Javon McKinley
  5. QB Steven Montez
  6. CB Parnell Motley
  7. OT Dan Skipper
  8. CB Saivion Smith
  9. TE Shane Zylstra

Thomas, 25, was a sixth-round pick of the Texans back in 2018. He was entering the third year of his four-year, $2.6 million rookie contract when Houston released him coming out of training camp last season. 

Arizona signed Thomas to their practice squad after he was cut from the Texans. The Cardinals activated him from the practice squad but decided to waive him soon after and was quickly claimed by New England. 

The Patriots waived Thomas late in 2020, and Thomas ultimately signed a futures contract with the Colts last year. Indianapolis waived Thomas with an injury settlement in September.

In 2020, Thomas appeared in four games for the Cardinals and two for the Patriots, recording one reception for three yards and one touchdown.
