On Monday afternoon, the Detroit Lions agreed to terms on a one-year contract with free agent wide receiver Maurice Stovall. A member of the Lions last season, Stovall played in 15 games with Detroit mainly as a member of the special teams unit but did manage to record one reception for eight yards. Standing at six-foot-five, 220 pounds, it is assumed that Stovall will once again be a contributor to the Lions special teams this season.
As of this time, there is no word from the Lions as to who the team will be releasing from the 90-man roster in order to make room for Stovall because the organization has a policy to refrain from comment until the contract is actually signed. This will be Stovall's second consecutive one-year contract with the Lions. Prior to coming to Detroit he spent five years in Tampa Bay as a member of the Buccaneers.
