In a corresponding move, the Lions have waived former 2nd-round draft pick running back Ameer Abdullah who was once projected to be an offensive force for Detroit, but has failed to live up to his potential or build off his promising rookie campaign.
Abdullah, 25, appeared in 25 games overall for Detroit, rushing for 1,251 yards and 6 touchdowns to go along with 57 receptions and 420 receiving yards.
Ellington had a career year in Houston last season, hauling in 29 catches for 330 yards and two touchdowns.
Texans Sign Darren Fells
Fells, 32, was cut by the Cleveland Browns earlier this month after the team failed to find a trade.
Fells, who inked a three-year, $12 million deal with the Browns last year, managed only 11 receptions in his only season in Cleveland.
Texans Signing Bradley Roby
Roby, 26, struggled during 2018 as a full time starter for the Broncos, but he helps fill the void in a Houston defensive backfield that suffered some key losses early in free agency.
