Lions Sign Keith Lewis, Austin Willis and Andre Roberts

The Detroit Lions announced that they have signed DB Keith Lewis and WR Andre Roberts. Detroit also waived WR Austin Willis and placed WR Corey Washington on Reserve/Injured.

Keith Lewis

Previously with the New York Jets (2014) and San Diego Chargers (2015) practice squads, Lewis entered the NFL as an undrafted rookie free agent with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2014 out of Virginia-Lynchburg. He most recently spent time with the Kansas City Chiefs after signing with the team as a free agent in January 2016.

In Roberts, the Lions get a veteran with 229 career catches for 2,711 yards and 13 touchdowns. His production has waned in each of the past four seasons between Arizona and Washington, including 11 catches for 135 yards and zero touchdowns last season. He will likely be viewed as a receiver who can play both inside and in the slot.

The Lions also signed Andre Caldwell and, after not drafting any receivers this year, picked up Jay Lee and Quinshad Davis as undrafted free agents.
