Packers: WR Geronimo Allison signs with Detroit

Following the lead of tight end Jimmy Graham, now former Green Bay Packers wide receiver Geronimo Allison is staying in the NFC North.

The Detroit Lions announced Sunday morning that they had signed the unrestricted free agent.

A former undrafted free agent, Allison set career highs in starts, games played and receptions last season for the Packers, but it was still considered a disappointing year. Green Bay moved him into the slot receiver spot in an effort to replace Randall Cobb and it was not a success. He averaged just 8.4 yards per reception and was credited with five drops, according to

Several of Green Bay’s free agents have now found new homes, including Graham in Chicago.
