Jeremy Ross WR DET 2 Months1 Comment

The Oakland Press' Paula Pasche believes WR/KR Jeremy Ross is in the mix to be the Lions' No. 3 wide receiver.

Ross flashed on special teams last season, scoring two special teams touchdowns and finishing near the top of the league in both kickoff and punt return average. Ross failed to make an impact on offense, though, posting a meager 6-67-1 stat line. With only injury-prone Ryan Broyles and replacement-level Kris Durahm ahead of him on the depth chart, Ross has an opportunity to seize a bigger role in Detriot's offense this time around. He will be a player to monitor during training camp.

Lions extended exclusive rights free agent tenders to WR/KR Jeremy Ross, LB Julian Stanford, CB Chris Greenwood, and TE Matt Veldman.

Ross is the most notable name here. He averaged 29.3 yards per kickoff return with a touchdown and 16.2 yards on punts with another score after signing off the practice squad last season. Ross won't be in the mix for significant 2014 offensive snaps, but should have Detroit's return duties locked up.
