Tom Kennedy: Signs future deal

Kennedy signed a reserve/future contract with the Lions on Tuesday.

Analysis: Kennedy has spent the better part of his first two NFL seasons with the Lions, although he's suited up in just one game. The 24-year-old wideout will vie for a depth role in 2021.

Tom Kennedy: Cut by Lions

The Lions signed Kennedy to the practice squad Sunday.

Analysis: Kennedy had a solid training camp but ultimately came up short of making the active roster, as the team decided to only retain six wideouts. He'll remain with the club as a member of the practice squad for the time being.

Tom Kennedy: Back in Detroit

Kennedy signed a reserve/future contract with the Lions on Monday.

Analysis: Kennedy was promoted to the active roster by the Lions on Sept. 27, but was cut shortly after. The 23-year-old is more of a developmental prospect that can be used as a special-teams asset.

Tom Kennedy: Promoted to active roster

The Lions promoted Kennedy to the active roster from the practice squad Friday, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: With Danny Amendola (chest) managing an injury, Kennedy will provide the Lions with depth at the wide receiver position. In the event that Amendola isn't able to suit up for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Kennedy will be a long shot to achieve fantasy relevance but could see limited offensive snaps.

Tom Kennedy: Signed to practice squad

Kennedy signed a contract to join the Lions' practice squad, Justin Rogers of the Detroit News reports.

Analysis: Kennedy signed with Detroit in May, but he was ultimately waived ahead of Week 1 and now joins the team's practice squad after going unclaimed on waivers. He's an extreme long shot to attain fantasy relevance in 2019.
