Former South Carolina wide receiver Bruce Ellington saw his time in Detroit end when the Lions released him in February.

A week passed before Ellington's career with the Texans was born. He signed with the Lions on November 6 and revealed to local reporters in the ensuing weeks he had a piece of his hamstring removed in 2016 to reduce the risk of further injury resulting from scar tissue. His best year came last year when he finished with 28 receptions for 304 yards, including a 10-catch, 124-yard performance against the Falcons.

Ellington will become the fifth New England wideout under contract after Julian Edelman, Phillip Dorsett, Braxton Berrios and Damoun Patterson. They agreed to sign one today.
