Block buster Trade: Detroit lions finally pulled the trigger for a deadly monster new contract worth….

On Wednesday, the Detroit Lions announced that they had signed wide receiver Daurice Fountain to a futures contract.

Detroit has now signed the following futures contract:

  1. LB Mitchell Agude
  2. WR Maurice Alexander
  3. G Matt Farniok
  4. RB Jake Funk
  5. T Connor Galvin
  6. DB Craig James
  7. RB Jermar Jefferson
  8. DB Brandon Joseph
  9. WR Tom Kennedy
  10. T Michael Niese
  11. DT Chris Smith
  12. TE Noah Togiai
  13. WR Daurice Fountains

Futures deals are essentially camp invites that will allow players to compete for roster spots during offseason workouts and training camp.

Fountain, 28, is a former fifth-round pick of the Colts back in 2018. He signed a four-year, $2.7 million contract with the team, but was waived at the start of the 2018 season.

The Colts later re-signed Fountain to their practice squad and eventually promoted him to their active roster towards the end of the 2018 season.

Indianapolis then re-signed Fountain to an exclusive rights free-agent deal in 2020. Fountain spent the season bouncing between the Colts’ practice squad and the active roster.

The Chiefs signed Fountain to a one-year deal in 2021 before releasing him and adding him to their active roster. He caught on with the Bears on a futures deal for 2022 before being let go at the end of the preseason and returned to the practice squad.

In 2021, Fountain played in six games for the Colts, recording two catches for 23 yards.
