The Lions have signed WR Marvin Hall and QB Chad Kanoff to practice squad, released WR Jonathan Duhart and RB Mark Thompson. Don’t know Hall or Kanoff, except Kanoff was on the Cardinals roster until cut day. So maybe they’re trying to get some information about them.
In Thompson’s case, I liked the guy and thought he would be a good option to have if they suffered injuries to their active RBs. Couldn’t they have found a less valuable guy? Or maybe that’s how they saw MT, I dunno.
