Detroit Lions sign veteran WR Kevin Ogletree who was cut by Bucs

ALLEN PARK — Kevin Ogletree didn’t seem to be a good fit in Tampa Bay, the Lions obviously think that will change with a move to Detroit.

The veteran wide receiver has signed a one-year deal with the Lions, according to an Associated Press report.

The Lions are short at the position with No. 2 receiver Nate Burleson out for at least another few weeks with a broken arm.

Ogletree, who is 6-foot-1, was cut by the Buccaneers on Tuesday after signing as a free agent in March. He had eight catches and 70 yards in four games with the struggling Bucs who are 0-4.

He spent his first four NFL seasons with the Dallas Cowboys where he had a career season in 2012 with 32 receptions, 436 receiving yards and four touchdowns.
