Allen Park, Mich.— The Detroit Lions announced today that they have signed free agents LB Christian Sam and DT Olive Sagapolu to the practice squad. Additional contract terms were not disclosed.
Prior to joining the Lions, Sam spent time on the San Francisco 49ers' and Miami Dolphins' practice squads this season. He entered the League in 2018 with the New England Patriots as a sixth-round draft pick (178th overall) out of Arizona State and spent his rookie year on the Reserve/Injured list.
Sagapolu comes to the Lions after spending the preseason with the Green Bay Packers, who signed him as an undrafted rookie free agent out of Wisconsin following the 2019 NFL Draft.
