Lions work out two DTs, sign a WR to futures deal

While the Detroit Lions waited to hear about the immediate future of star defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, the team also spent part of the day working out some defensive tackles.

The Lions worked out Jermelle Cudjo and Ogemdi Nwagbuo on Tuesday, according to ESPN Insider Field Yates. The team also signed former Boston College wide receiver Ifeanyi Momah to a reserve/futures deal.

The 6-foot-7 Momah was briefly on the Lions' practice squad this season, during the week the team went to London. He worked out at wide receiver and tight end during his short time with Detroit. He's spent time in camp with Philadelphia and was on the Cleveland and Detroit practice squads. His size makes him an intriguing prospect.

Now to the workout guys, both of whom were veterans who might have been insurance in case Suh's suspension was upheld:

DT Jermelle Cudjo: He went undrafted in 2010 and eventually signed with St. Louis, where he spent four seasons. He played in 38 games, making 44 tackles and having 1.5 sacks. He signed with Kansas City last offseason but was cut before the year.

DT Ogemdi Nwagbuo: The former Michigan State defensive tackle went undrafted in 2008. He has bounced around the NFL since then, including a very brief stint with the Lions in 2012, when he appeared in one game and didn't make a tackle. In all, he's played in 36 games, making 44 tackles with 1.5 sacks. He was last with Cincinnati during the playoffs last season.
