The Lions have signed Mulligan, the Detroit Free Press reports. 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 was released by the Bills on Tuesday, WKBW's Joe Buscaglia reports. Mulligan, a 30-year-old blocking specialist, has just 17 catches in 81 career games. For the corresponding transaction, fellow tight end Nick O'Leary was promoted from the practice squad.
The Bills signed tight end Matthew Mulligan, the team announced Thursday. Mulligan, 30, has a total of 16 receptions for 160 yards and two touchdowns in his seven-year career.
The Titans placed tight end Brett Brackett (knee) on injured reserve and promoted tight end Matthew Mulligan from the practice squad, the team announced.
The Cardinals waived running back Michael Bush and tight end Matthew Mulligan Friday, reports the team's website. The Cardinals signed Bush to help provide backfield depth, but Bush never received a carry for the Cardinals. With two open roster spots, the Cardinals promoted running back Kerwynn Williams from the team's practice squad and activated linebacker Matt Shaughnessy from short-term IR. The Cardinals play the Chiefs Week 14.
