Lions sign former Rams receiver Dominique Curry

Posted by ttwentyman on July 23, 2012 – 6:04 pm

The Lions receivers’ room is becoming quite crowded with the news that the team added receiver Dominique Curry on Monday. The Lions now have 13 receivers on their 90-man roster.

Curry spent the last two seasons with the Rams after they signed him as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2010 out of California (PA). He played in 16 games with the Rams last season, almost exclusively on special teams, where he had 10 tackles and was a solid performer. Curry did not record a reception.
