On Monday afternoon, the Detroit Lions announced that the club had come to terms with wide receiver Dominique Curry on a contract. Curry had spent the last two seasons with the St. Louis Rams, as the team signed him as an undrafted free agent out of California (PA) in 2010.

After being part of the practice squad for most of his first season, Curry played in all 16 games last season, mostly in the role of a special teams player, and he did not record a single reception but did manage to collect 10 tackles.
With the addition of the 23-year-old, 6-foot-2, 224 pound receiver, the Lions have 13 receivers on their 90-man roster, which undoubtedly will make competition at training camp all the more intense.
