Looking to add more depth to the tight end position, the signed Jake Nordin to the practice squad. Nordin was on the Lions' roster this past summer and had been playing in the UFL up until last week. The UFL's season came to an end and Nordin's team, the Las Vegas Locomotives, won the championship. UFL players are now free to sign with NFL teams, and Nordin wasted no time in coming back to Detroit.
The Lions also signed offensive guard Kurt Quarterman to the practice squad. Quarterman worked out for the Lions on Tuesday along with Brian Daniels, Carson Butler, Marcus McCauley, Keiwan Ratliff, and Courtney Robinson. With injuries continuing to happen, it's important to maintain a short list of free agents, so it's not surprise that the Lions are doing their homework, especially with the injury bug that has been going around lately.
