I'm not sure why the Detroit Lions keep adding wide receivers, but they did just that on Monday by signing Dominique Curry, according to Tim Twentyman. He was added to the roster following the release of cornerback Aaron Berry. Most figured another cornerback would take Berry's spot on the roster, but for now it has gone to Curry.

Curry joined the NFL in 2010 as an undrafted free agent. He appeared in only two games in his rookie season with the St. Louis Rams and didn't record any stats as a receiver. He also didn't record any receiving stats in 2011 with the Rams despite appearing in all 16 games. He did have 10 tackles in 2011, indicating that he is primarily a special teams player.

With the Lions adding Curry, they now have 13 wide receivers on their 90-man roster. The majority of them are competing for the fifth and likely final spot on the roster at wide receiver, and Curry will hope to make the team based on his special teams play. This is how Maurice Stovall, who is one of the players competing for that spot this year, earned a spot on the roster last year.
