Detroit Lions sign WR Victor Bolden to practice squad

The Lions have brought back Victor Bolden to their practice squad.

The Detroit Lions started off their return from the bye week with a minor roster move. The team announced on Tuesday afternoon they have re-signed wide receiver Victor Bolden to their practice squad.

Bolden was originally signed to the Lions’ practice squad late in 2019 during the final month of the season. Though he never was promoted to the active roster, he stuck around on a future contract. He didn’t make the team’s initial 53-man roster in 2020, though he did hang around the practice squad for a couple of days.

He was eventually cut when the Lions signed running back Kerrith Whyte to the practice squad. Seeing as Whyte was placed on the practice squad injured reserve list prior to the bye week, Bolden is now back to provide some receiver depth on this team.

Bolden has been around the NFL since 2017, making brief appearances here and there. His best route to playing time may be through special teams, where he has experience as both a punt and kick returner.

To make room for Bolden, the Lions waived running back Tavien Feaster, who only spent a week on the roster after Whyte was placed on IR.
