DETROIT, MI (The Spread) - The Lions have signed former Bengals safety Taylor Mays to a contract.

Mays was released by the Vikings earlier this week so it didn't take the former second-round pick to find work. He'll stay in the NFC North and look to stick with the Lions as a backup safety and special teams player. This is Mays' fourth team since being drafted by the 49ers in 2010.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book GT Bets, the Lions are 40/1 to win the 2016 Super Bowl and 20/1 to win the NFC Conference Championship. They're also 6/1 to win the NFC North Division, which give them the same odds as the Vikings.
