Detroit Lions News

Donald Parham, Lands in Los Angeles

Parham signed a two-year contract with the Chargers on Wednesday, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Parham's most recent pro action came with the Dallas Renegades in the XFL, during which he logged 24 catches for 307 yards and four touchdowns across five contests. He also spent time in Washington as an undrafted rookie last offseason. The Stetson product will now get a shot to compete for a depth role in the Chargers' tight end corps.

Eric Ebron, Joins Pittsburgh TE corps

Ebron will sign a two-year, $12 million deal with the Steelers, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Ebron is bouncing back from procedures in both of his ankles, but evidently the Steelers are comfortable with the way he's progressing and have added another pass-catching weapon for QB Ben Roethlisberger. When healthy, Ebron can be a useful red-zone option, as evidenced by the the fact the he scored 17 touchdowns in 27 games over the last two seasons he spent with the Colts.

Darren Fells, Re-signs with Houston

Fells is signing a two-year, $7 million contract to stay with the Texans, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: Fells signed a one-year, $1.5 million contract last offseason and went on to set career highs in every major receiving category: 34 catches for 341 yards and seven touchdowns on 48 targets. He's mostly been known for run blocking throughout his pro career, but he does have 17 TDs among his 102 catches, and his 12 red-zone targets last season were second most among Houston pass catchers. With Fells entering his age-34 season and likely to take on a good number of snaps again, the 2020 fantasy prospects for Jordan Akins (hamstring), Jordan Thomas and Kahale Warring don't look great. Expect the Texans to use some form of rotation at tight end, likely involving two or three players on a regular basis.

Theo Riddick, Ready for free agency

Riddick (shoulder) has been medically cleared and is set to become an unrestricted free agent, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

Analysis: Riddick signed with the Broncos in early August and suffered a shoulder fracture shortly thereafter. He may have been healthy enough to return from injured reserve in the second half of the season, but the Broncos used their two IR activations on Drew Lock and Tim Patrick. The 28-year-old running back now hopes to drum up interest on the open market as a passing-down specialist, a role in which he averaged 4.4 catches per game from 2015 to 2018 with the Lions.

Kenny Golladay, Candidate for contract extension

Golladay is a candidate for a contract extension this offseason, Chris Burke of the Athletic reports.

Analysis: Detroit's future at wide receiver isn't clear with each of Golladay, Marvin Jones and Danny Amendola under contact for no more than one more season. Extending Golladay thus seems like a no-brainer, and it seems likely that the Lions will also bring in a young body at the position through the draft or free agency.
