Lions sign Ross Weaver to practice squad

Andrew Weber-US PRESSWIRE

The Lions filled an open spot on their practice squad by bringing back cornerback Ross Weaver on Wednesday.

The Detroit Lions signed free agent cornerback Ross Weaver to their practice squad Wednesday afternoon, Lions beat writer Tim Twentyman reports. It's just the latest stint with Detroit's practice squad for Weaver, who has bounced around with numerous organizations since going pro.

After going undrafted out of Michigan State in 2010, Weaver initially signed with the Miami Dolphins, but he was cut before ever appearing in a game. He still hasn't actually appeared in an NFL game, though he's spent time on the practice squads for the Seattle Seahawks and Dallas Cowboys in addition to the Lions.

Twentyman says that the Lions had an open spot on their practice squad after promoting fullback Shaun Chapas to the active roster last week. Chapas has also been providing Detroit with depth at tight end as the team has dealt with some injuries at the position.

A native of Southland, Mich., Weaver turns 26 on Jan. 7, 2013.
