Allison signed with the Falcons on Monday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports. Allison heads to Atlanta coming off of a disappointing tenure with the Lions over the past two seasons. The 6-foot-3 wide receiver did not register a single reception while seeing just two targets over three games this past season after opting out of the 2020 campaign due to COVID concerns. Allison now joins an influx of receiver talent for Atlanta and likely will compete with fellow veterans Damiere Byrd and KhaDarel Hodge for a depth role heading into the 2022 season.
The Lions cut Allison from their practice squad Tuesday. Allison landed on the practice squad COVID-19 list in late December and was away from the team for just over a week. He'll now attempt to seek out other opportunities heading into the offseason.
Allison was restored to the Lions' practice squad from the practice squad COVID-19 list Thursday. The wide receiver was placed on the COVID-19 list Dec. 29, remaining away from the team for just over a week. Allison appeared in three games early in the season for the Lions, failing to reel in either of his targets for catches.
Allison (undisclosed) was placed on the Lions' practice squad COVID-19 list Wednesday. Allison signed with Detroit's practice squad in mid-November after being waived from the active roster. He'll now be unavailable until he clears the health and safety protocols.
Allison re-signed with the Lions' practice squad Thursday. Allison has played in three games with Detroit this season but hasn't brought in either of his two targets. In his four-year stint with the Packers prior to joining the Lions, Allison recorded 1,045 receiving yards across 46 games. The 27-year-old was waived by the Lions on Tuesday after his two weeks of practice-squad eligibility was up, and given the team's generally thin depth at receiver, he's likely to be promoted to the active roster before the end of the season.
