The Lions have come to terms with wide receiver Matt Willis, Tim Twentyman of DetroitLions.com reported Tuesday.

The 29-year-old Willis will compete to make the Lions as a reserve wideout and special teams coverage player. He caught 10 passes for 90 yards in 15 regular-season games for Denver in 2012 while also notching a career-high seven tackles on special teams.

Willis entered the NFL in 2007 as an undrafted free agent from UCLA. He had been with Denver since late in the 2008 season. Overall, he’s caught 30 passes for 385 yards and one touchdown while notching 15 special teams stops in regular-season play.

    I am sure that this is just camp competition. Too many trying for KR/PR at this point.

    He couldn’t even pass level one in Ninja Warrior. Bum.

    Hey Tokyobuttbuster, I’m thinking at least 10 wins.

    @tokyosandblaster

    I bet five wins is more wins than times you’ve been laid.

    Bold talking Lion fans, it’s a sign of spring.

    Ouch. Making fun of someone you know nothing about. That’s like walking into brain surgery with no medical experience, and saying “I got this.”

    Whatever gets you through!

    You guys predicted a division crown and a Super Bowl last year.

    You were really close.

    Matt Willis could be the guy to get them to 6 wins.

    this guy is a TERRIBLE KR/PR

    Looks like the Lions are going all in for 2013.

    My above comment is sarcastic, by the way.

    It’s funny people call him a KR/PR, he doesn’t really do either, he’s a gunner on punt, kickoff guy, basically a special teams jack of all trades and he’s not bad at that.
