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.

  1. I don’t understand why people comment “Who?” If it’s a sincere question, there’s google. You can even copy and paste the name… If it’s an insincere question, understand that teams need core special teams players.

    But the main takeaway is that nobody posted this kind of stuff on the Lions articles before because nobody cared who they signed when they sucked. This is just a sign of respect that trolls are posting this on Lions articles now.
