Detroit Lions Sign WR Micheal Spurlock

So much for the idea of bringing in Micheal Spurlock as the return specialist/utility wide receiver. The Detroit Lions have signed the fan favorite today to a contract.

Spurlock looked good in the slot for the Chargers and Philip Rivers looked like he had confidence throwing him the football. Surprisingly, he only caught 9 passes last season.

Spurlock also shined on special teams for the Chargers. He returned a punt and a kickoff for a score wearing the blue and gold.

He could have been a good player to add onto the roster to compete for return duties. Looks like there is a vote of confidence in keeping Eddie Royal on the roster.
