The Lions have claimed tight end Khari Lee via waivers, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Tuesday.

Lee was waived by the Bears last weekend. The Bears acquired him last summer in a trade with the Texans, with whom Lee broke into the league as an undrafted rookie.

Lee played in seven games last season for the Bears. He had one reception.

The Lions have shuffled through a bunch of tight ends this offseason. On their initial 53-man roster they kept three tight ends: Starter Eric Ebron, rookie Cole Wick and journeyman Orson Charles.
