Lions sign LB Julian Stanford

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Detroit Lions have added linebacker Julian Stanford to their roster.

The Detroit Lions have signed linebacker Julian Stanford. The move was announced on Tuesday evening and gives the Lions 53 players on their active roster again. (Stanford is taking the place of linebacker Travis Lewis, who has been suspended for the final four games of the season.)

Stanford, much to the surprise of no one, is a former Jacksonville Jaguar. He joined the Jaguars in 2012 and made the team as an undrafted free agent. He ended up playing in all 16 games for the Jaguars and even made six starts. He finished with 23 tackles.

For the Lions, Stanford will strictly play special teams barring injuries. Lewis' role saw him play only on the special teams units, and that's what Stanford will be expected to do while Lewis waits to return from his suspension.
