Detroit Lions Undrafted Free Agents: Pitt receiver Dontez Ford signs with team

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Pitt had a flurry of guys sign undrafted free agent deals immediately after the NFL Draft this weekend. Another one came a little later in wide receiver Dontez Ford. Per head coach Pat Narduzzi, there was a lot of interest in Ford and he decided to join the Detroit Lions:

Ford missed much of the season with reportedly a broken collarbone. But after going out early during the Penn State game, he returned around the midway point of the year and finished the season with 17 catches, 288 yards, and a pair of touchdowns.

His best game was arguably against Syracuse when he caught two passes for 89 yards (one went for 79 yards) and a touchdown. His other score came against Duke the week before.
