ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) -The Detroit Lions signed linebacker Donte Curry, bringing back a player who was cut just before the season after spending five years with the team.
``He's a veteran, well loved by this team, and he brings something special,'' Detroit coach Rod Marinelli said Wednesday. ``He's an excellent special teams player.''
The Lions cut running back Aveion Cason to make room for Curry. The team also put tight end Rudy Sylvan on the practice squad and took running back Anthony Sherrell off it.
Curry made his NFL debut with the Washington Redskins in 2001, then spent the next five seasons with the Lions and contributed mostly on special teams.
