Lions add ex-Spoto standout Geronimo Allison

The receiver comes from the Packers, reportedly for a veteran’s minimum deal.

The Lions agreed to terms with wide receiver Geronimo Allison, announcing the move Sunday.

Allison, 26, a former Spoto standout, comes to Detroit from division rival Green Bay. He caught 34 passes for 287 yards and two touchdowns last season.

Allison, undrafted out of Illinois, played his first four seasons with the Packers. Wide receiver was a position of strength for Detroit last season, with Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones and Danny Amendola each surpassing 60 catches and 600 yards receiving. Allison will likely be a strong candidate for No. 4 receiver.

With four picks in the top 85 in the draft, Detroit also could look for a receiver there.

The Lions did not announce contract terms. The NFL Network reported it is a one-year, $910,000 veteran’s minimum deal.
