Lions sign Luke Willson to 1-year, $2.5 million contract
The Detroit Lions signed tight end Luke Willson, formerly of the Seattle Seahawks, to a 1-year, $2.5 million contract.
Willson will take over as the Lions' new number-one tight end, following Eric Ebron's release and Darren Fells departure to the Cleveland Browns. The 28-year-old tight end never saw more than 40 targets in Seattle but he should see more opportunity in Detroit.
Willson averaged 3.6 FanDuel points last season, with 15 (22 targets) catches for 153 yards and 4 touchdowns.
