    Detroit Lions activate Jalen Reeves-Maybin; sign wide receiver

    Allen Park — The Detroit Lions have seen the number of minor injuries across the roster swell the past week, but the team got some good news ahead of Monday’s practice, announcing linebacker Jalen Reeves-Maybin has been activated off the COVID-19/reserve list. 

    A top special teams standout in recent years, the Lions re-signed Reeves-Maybin this offseason with the expectation of giving him an opportunity to reclaim a role in the defensive rotation after seeing a career-low 38 snaps with the unit a year ago. 

    A fourth-round draft pick out of Tennessee in 2017, Reeves-Maybin has spent his entire career with the Lions. 

    “We were excited to get him back because we know what he can do from a level on special teams for us,” Lions coach Dan Campbell said earlier this offseason. “He plays hard, he’s smart. You can watch him on tape. I mean, we went back and watched him in 2019 when he played at linebacker quite a bit. So he comes in, there’s no telling. You never know what you have in this player. We haven’t told anybody anything other than an opportunity, so he comes in here and we’ll give him a chance to compete.”
