Ogletree was released by the Tampa Bay Bucs on Tuesday after only four games with the team. Ogletree’s previously played for the Dallas Cowboys over the last four seasons. The 2012 season was his most productive after scoring 4 touchdowns and catching 32 passes.

After the signing is official the Lions will have to make a roster move which will probably include someone being placed on waivers. Could Mikael Leshoure be on his way out? After being in inactive 3 of the last four weeks, fans have to wonder when the other shoe is going to drop.
