Zach Zenner Analyzing why the Lions welcomed him back

The Detroit Lions have released running back Ameer Abdullah, cutting ties with their seldom-used, second-round pick from the 2015 draft. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport was the first to report the signing.

A fourth-round pick of San Francisco in 2014, Ellington spent two seasons with the 49ers and then 14 games over two seasons with Houston before being placed on injured reserve by the Texans on September 25 with a hamstring injury and released last week. He was on injured reserve with a hamstring injury but has recovered and was cleared to work out for different teams. Contract terms were not disclosed.

Abdullah had one carry, two catches and returned four kickoffs in three games this year.

Ellington comes to Detroit after most recently spending the past two seasons (2017-18) with the Houston Texans where he appeared in three games (one start) this season and recorded eight catches, 92 receiving yards and one touchdown.

Ellington might be the Lions' new slot receiver after they traded Golden Tate to the Philadelphia Eagles a week ago. Prior to Houston, he spent time (2014-16) with the San Francisco 49ers, appearing in 26 games during his stint with the club.
