The Lions have signed Mulligan, the Detroit Free Press reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Mulligan gives the Lions some added tight end depth, with Brandon Pettigrew still recovering from a torn ACL. Once Pettigrew recovers from his injury, look for Mulligan to compete with Tim Wright for the Lions' No. 3 tight end job behind presumed starter Eric Ebron and Pettigrew.

Mulligan signed with the Bills on Thursday, reports.

Outside of Scott Chandler, the Bills have required quite a few Mulligans at the tight end spot going back all the way to Jay Riemersma, but Mulligan has a history with new coach Rex Ryan and will be given a shot at a depth role based on his blocking prowess. Right now the position is anyone's guess after starter Charles Clay.

Mulligan signed with the Cardinals on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun reports.

Mulligan will provide the Cardinals with tight end depth after the team lost rookie Troy Niklas to a season-ending ankle injury. The team already has John Carlson, Rob Housler and Darren Fells ahead of Mulligan on the depth chart, so it's unlikely he'll be featured heavily in the offensive game plan this season. It took him over two months since being released by the Bears to sign on elsewhere, as the 29-year-old hasn't recorded a reception in the league since his time with the Patriots in 2013.
