Lions sign WR Chaz Schilens

Debby Wong-USA TODAY Sports

The Detroit Lions have signed wide receiver Chaz Schilens.

The Detroit Lions' Wednesday workout has produced a signing. To be specific, the Lions have added wide receiver Chaz Schilens. The move was first reported by Adam Schefter.

Schilens joins the Lions after spending the 2012 season with the New York Jets. He appeared in 15 games and made six starts for the Jets, and he recorded 28 catches for 289 yards and 2 touchdowns.

Before going to New York, Schilens spent four seasons with the Oakland Raiders. His best season, by far, came in 2009. That year, he had 29 catches for 365 yards and 2 touchdowns in only eight games.

Simply based on his past production, Schilens isn't on the same level as Steve Breaston and Laurent Robinson, who also took part in the Lions' Wednesday workout. However, Breaston and Robinson have both had trouble staying healthy over the years. That's not to say that Schilens has never dealt with injuries, but perhaps he is the healthiest of the bunch right now.

Schilens, who gives the Lions 90 players on their roster, will battle the likes of Mike Thomas, Kris Durham and Patrick Edwards for a spot at wide receiver in training camp.
