The Detroit Lions announced Tuesday that they’ve signed CB Brandon McGee to a contract and placed CB Keith Lewis on waivers.
McGee comes to Detroit following stints with the St. Louis Rams, New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys practice squads in 2015. He appeared in one game for the Giants last season (10/19 at Phi) after being signed to the active roster.
A former fifth-round draft selection (149 overall) by the Rams in the 2013 NFL Draft out of Miami (Fla.), McGee played in 17 games for the Rams from 2013-14. In 18 career NFL games, he has recorded 12 total tackles (10 solo).
Lewis was a former undrafted free agent out of Virginia Lynchburg. He is a speedster, and we wish him the best of luck.
