Lions Sign WR Brandon Reilly To Futures Deal


The Detroit Lions announced Tuesday that they’ve signed WR Brandon Reilly to a futures contract for the 2019 season. 

The Lions have now signed 10 players to futures deals including:

  1. WR Deontez Alexander
  2. LB Garret Dooley
  3. S David Jones
  4. OL Jarron Jones
  5. DE Jonathan Wynn
  6. QB Connor Cook
  7. RB Mark Thompson
  8. RB Kerwynn Williams
  9. P Ryan Santoso
  10. WR Brandon Reilly

Futures deals are essentially camp invites that will give players the opportunity to compete for roster spots during offseason workouts and training camp.

Reilly, 25, originally signed on with the Bills as an undrafted free agent out of Nebraska back in 2017. He spent over a year in Buffalo before he was waived coming out of the preseason last year.

The Lions later signed Reilly to their practice squad and he would later catch on with the Cowboys a few weeks ago.

During his four-year college career at Nebraska, Reilly caught 70 passes for 1,275 yards receiving and six touchdowns over the course of four seasons and 28 games.
