Linebacker Jalen Reeves-Maybin has signed with the Lions, according to his agent, Brian McLaughlin.
The Texans cut Reeves-Maybin on March 16.
He spent five seasons in Detroit before joining the Texans on a two-year, $7.5 million deal a year ago. Reeves-Maybin played all 17 games last season, seeing action on 88 defensive snaps and 390 on special teams.
The Lions made Reeves-Maybin a fourth-round pick in 2017. Though he started only 14 games in five seasons, he was a core special teams player.
Reeves-Maybin was a team captain in 2021.
He will help replace Chris Board, who left for the Patriots after leading the Lions in special teams snaps in 2022.
