Lions Sign Center Evan Boehm, Activate Guard Evan Heim

The Detroit Lions announce two roster moves on Monday.

The Detroit Lions announced a couple of roster moves just ahead of their Monday training camp practice. 

With an already talented group of offensive linemen in camp, two more have been added to the roster. 

While the depth chart is more certain along the offensive line than at other positions, the Lions were in need of additional depth. 

Early in training camp, the Lions were without a couple of their linemen, as Evan Brown was placed on the non-football injury list and guard Evan Heim was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

On Monday, Detroit proceeded to sign center Evan Boehm, who was drafted in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft. Boehm has had stops with the Cardinals, Colts and Dolphins. 

In 2020, he did not see game action, as he spent time on the practice squads of the Bills and Jaguars. 

Detroit returns one additional lineman, as Heim was also activated off of the reserve/COVID-19 list. 

With the roster moves announced, Detroit now has 90 men on their active roster.

Padded practices for the Lions will now begin on Tuesday.
