New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz and cornerback Trumaine McBride have been placed on season-ending injured reserve.
The move likely corresponds with a promotion for practice squad cornerback Mohammed Seisay.
Offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi hesitated to label Ogletree definitively as the number three wide receiver, but he spoke highly of him.
The Detroit Lions achieved one of their top goals this offseason, retaining Joique Bell, and took a step toward another one, setting up a meeting with Golden Tate.
The Lions brought Ogletree in shortly after the team lost Nate Burleson to a broken arm suffered in a falling-pizza-induced car crash.
He stands by his refusal to compare, but he also continues to dance around conceding that Johnson is the best.
The Detroit Lions have formally announced the signing of wide receiver Kevin Ogletree.
Many expected that the Detroit Lions would bring in another wide receiver after the injury to Nate Burleson, and now it looks like the team is closing in on a deal.
