The Lions announced Friday that they have signed WR Derrick Williams to a three-year deal. Additional terms of his contract were not disclosed.

Williams was selected with Detroit’s second pick in the third round (82nd overall) of the 2009 NFL Draft.

The 5-11, 197-pound Williams starred at Penn State as a wideout and kick returner. According to Pro Football Weekly’s 2009 Draft Preview, he is “deceptively fast” and “should be able to contribute readily in the slot and upgrade a return game.”
