Lions Add Veteran TE David Ausberry

Oakland Raiders v Miami Dolphins

The Lions made a minor move to bolster the team’s tight end depth heading into mandatory minicamp next week, signing David Ausberry, Justin Rogers of Mlive reports.

A seventh-round draft pick out of USC in 2011, Ausberry spent four seasons with the Oakland Raiders. The 6-foot-4, 250-pounder appeared in 34 games, catching 11 passes for 120 yards. He missed all of the 2013 season with a shoulder injury.

The former wide receiver ran a 4.48-second 40-yard dash coming out of college, fast for his position. He was also was a significant contributor on special teams for Oakland.

To clear room on the roster, the Lions released rookie safety Nathan Lindsey, an Inkster native.
