DETROIT - Former Norfolk State safety Bobby Price was signed to the Detroit Lions' practice squad.
Shortly after the NFL Draft in April, Price agreed to a free-agent contract with the Lions. He was waived by the team on Saturday when the team made roster cuts ahead of naming its 53-man roster, then added to the practice squad on Sunday.
