Lions keep Kassim Osgood


Special teams coverage specialist Kassim Osgood is staying in Detroit.

Osgood, who has made three Pro Bowls as a special teamer, agreed to a new deal with the Lions today, a league source tells PFT.

Although he’s listed as a wide receiver, Osgood didn’t catch any passes last season and has rarely been more than a role player on offense at any point in his nine-year NFL career.

But what Osgood does well is play special teams, and that’s an area where the Lions need help. He’ll help them out in the kicking game for another year.
