The Detroit Lions have signed veteran wide receiver and former Houston Texan Bruce Ellington, according to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport.

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.
