Detroit Lions sign Kalif Raymond to become new return man
The Detroit Lions have a new returnee.
Caliph Raymond agreed to a one-year contract with the Lions on Tuesday, his agency EnterSports Management announced on Twitter.
Raymond, 26, replaces Jamal Agnew, who signed a three-year deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars last week.
He was the Tennessee Titans’ top returner last season when he averaged 9 yards per punt return and 18.3 yards per kick return.

Originally signed with the Denver Broncos as a vacant rookie from Holy Cross, Raymond also has experience as a receiver – he has 19 career catches – and as a shooter in punt coverage.
He previously played for the New York Jets and New York Giants and missed Tennessee’s game with the Lions in December when he was on the Reserve / COVID-19 list.
Agnew scored five touchdowns in four seasons in Detroit.
