Lions Waive CB Dee Virgin


The Detroit Lions announced Tuesday that they’ve waived CB Dee Virgin.

Virgin, 24, wound up signing a three-year, $1.66 million contract with the Texans as an undrafted free agent out of West Alabama back in May of last year. He was set to make base salaries of $465,000 and $555,000 over the first two years of the contract when the Texans waived him as they cut their roster down to 53 players.

Virgin later signed on to the Texans practice squad and returned to Houston on a futures contract this past January. However, he was waived coming out of the preseason and was later claimed by the Lions.

In 2018, Virgin has appeared in three games for the Lions and recorded one tackle and no interceptions for pass defenses.
