Allen Park — Lions signed five of their practice squad players to reserve/future contracts.

Wide receivers Ryan Spadola and Corey Washington, linebacker Khaseem Greene, tight end Casey Pierce an offensive tackle Tyrus Thompson will all be on the Lions roster in the 2016 offseason.

The players all spent varied amounts of time with the Lions, but Pierce was with the practice squad all year after joining the team as an undrafted rookie last spring.
