The Lions have signed receiver Kris Durham (6-6, 215) to their practice squad, according to a league source.
Durham was among Seattle’s final cuts on Friday. He was a fourth-round pick by the Seahawks out of Georgia last season, but only played in three games before landing on injured reserve with a shoulder injury. He had three catches for 30 yards last season.
Durham played at Georgia with Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford from 2006-08. He finished his college career with 64 catches for 1,109 yards and four touchdowns.
He will join offensive lineman Rodney Austin, running back Stephfon Green, cornerback Ross Weaver, linebacker Carmen Messina and wide receiver Patrick Edwards on the practice squad. The Lions have two spots still available on the practice squad.
