The Detroit Lions are bringing back linebacker Jalen Reeves-Maybin. According to a tweet from his agent, Reeves-Maybin has agreed to terms on a contract that will bring him back to Detroit. As of Wednesday night, the terms have not been released publicly.

Originally a fourth-round pick from the Lions in 2017, Reeves-Maybin enjoyed a somewhat successful five-year run with Detroit, starting only 14 games but being a standout on special teams for his entire career with the Lions. In 2021—the first year of the Dan Campbell era—he was even named special teams captain for the team.

However, after that season, Reeves-Maybin was a free agent and the Lions likely couldn’t afford to keep him. He signed a two-year, $7.5 million deal with the Houston Texans—a significant raise from the one-year, $2.4 million deal he had signed with Detroit the year before.
