Person familiar with negotiations to AP: Lions and WR Kevin Ogletree agree to 1-year contract

A person familiar with the negotiations says the Detroit Lions and wide receiver Kevin Ogletree have agreed to a one-year contract.

The person spoke Tuesday to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the deal had not been announced.

Ogletree adds depth where Detroit needs it because Nate Burleson was released and Ryan Broyles has struggled to stay healthy. He had 13 receptions for 199 yards and a touchdown in 12 games last season for the Lions, who signed him after Tampa Bay cut him.

Ogletree has 78 career receptions for 999 yards and six touchdowns over five seasons, four of which were with the Dallas Cowboys.
