Punter Matt Wile is Signed by Detroit Lions to practice squad
The Cardinal signed the former Atlanta Falcons punter Matt Wile to the practice squad Tuesday.
The general manager Steve Keim of Detroit Lions was not satisfied with its current punter Drew Butler and another punter is now with the organization.
The Lions released linebacker Reshard Cliett from the practice squad. He was signed on Nov. 22 and was a sixth-round pick of the Houston Texans in 2015.
In Week 12, Wile played one game against the Lions this season. In that game, he averaged 58 yards on his two punts and recorded a touchback on all seven of his kickoffs.
Before joining the Falcons, Wile has fought for roster spots on the Carolina Panthers in 2015 and the Dallas Cowboys this past offseason. On Nov. 29, Wile was released by Atlanta.
