  • Lions' Jace Billingsley: Returning to Motown
    By RotoWire Staff

    Billingsley was re-signed by the Lions on Tuesday. Billingsley returns to the Lions after being waived ahead of Sunday's showdown with the Browns in order to make room for offensive lineman Taylor Decker and Corey Robinson on the roster. In order to make room for Billingsley, the Lions waived fellow wideout Jared Abbrederis, which could lead to some increased offensive snaps for the speedster out of Eastern Oregon. Billingsley will now be the fifth option on the depth chart.

  • Jace Billingsley: Waived by Detroit
    By RotoWire Staff

    Billingsley was waived by the Lions on Saturday, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports. Billingsley became an expendable sixth receiver once the Lions' receiving corps started showing improved health, and the team needed to shore up its offensive line by activating Taylor Decker and Corey Robinson. The 24-year-old will likely return to Detroit's practice squad if he clears waivers.

  • Lions' Jace Billingsley: Lands on 53-man roster
    By RotoWire Staff

    The Lions signed Billingsley to a contract Wednesday, Mike Rothstein of ESPN.com reports. The receiving corps in Detroit is particularly banged up at the moment, so Billingsley's addition from the practice squad should at least give the team more numbers at the position. Golden Tate will likely miss the next game or two due to a sprained AC joint, and it's unclear if Kenny Golladay (hamstring) is trending toward a return, despite practicing Monday. Billingsley has yet to log an NFL snap but could act as the No. 4 wideout Sunday against the Steelers if the aforementioned duo is unable to take the field.

  • Jace Billingsley: Stashed on practice squad
    By RotoWire Staff

    Billingsley was signed to the Lions' practice squad, Tim Twentyman of the team's official site reports. Fan favorite Billingsley didn't survive last weekend's roster cuts, as Jared Abbrederis won the battle for the No. 5 receiver gig. Should injuries hit the Lions' wideouts this season -- specifically slot men Golden Tate and Abbrederis -- look for Billingsley to get the call-up.

  • Billingsley caught both of his targets and gained two yards in Thursday's preseason game against the Bills. In addition to the lackluster production as a receiver, Billingsley was a mess on special teams, muffing a punt as well as a kickoff, though he recovered both. The diminutive receiver entered the preseason finale in a direct competition with Jared Abbrederis for the No. 5 receiver job in Detroit, as Golden Tate, Marvin Jones, Kenny Golladay and TJ Jones all seem in safe standing for roster spots. Though Billingsley clearly failed to impress, neither did Abbrederis, who caught only one pass but fumbled after gaining 16 yards. Since either Abbrederis or Billingsley would only make the team for their capabilities on special teams, there's a chance the Lions could bid adieu to both players and see if they can fill the kick-returning gigs with their internal options.
