The Lions on Tuesday signed veteran receiver and returner Micheal Spurlock. Spurlock, 30, finished last season with the Jaguars. He's also played for the Bucs, Cardinals, 49ers and Chargers. He's had two punt returns for touchdowns and three kickoff returns for touchdowns. He had the first kickoff return for a touchdown in Tampa Bay history. To make room for him, the Lions released former Wayne State receiver Troy Burrell. The Lions also continue to stockpile interior offensive lineman. One day after signing former Titans center-guard Leroy Harris, they signed his former teammate, Jake Scott. Scott, 32, finished last season with Eagles but played in Tennessee from 2008-11. He was a fifth-round draft pick of the Colts in 2004 and won a Super Bowl ring with them. The Lions now have 10 interior linemen on their 90-man roster. Dominic Raiola and Darren Keyton are true centers. Harris, Dylan Gandy and Bill Nagy can play center and guard. Scott, Rob Sims, Larry Warford, Derek Hardman and Rodney Austin are guards. The team released tight end Nathan Overbay to make room for Scott.
