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

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.
