Tight-end Josh Hill follows Dan Campbell to Detroit.

Lions reunited 30-year-old Hill with a recently established head coach by signing a free agent tight end on Saturday.

The conditions are not published. Hill was released by New Orleans Saints earlier this month, with a three-year deal of $ 8.85 million for the remaining year.

Campbell, an assistant to Saints, got his first head coach job with Lions in January.

Originally from Idaho, an undrafted free agent, Hill spent eight seasons with the saints. In 117 games (61 starts), he compiled 116 catches and 1,071 yards with 15 touchdowns.

Runblocking specialist Hill played only eight catches last season, despite playing 33% of New Orleans’ aggressive snaps.
