On Friday, Dicky Lyons stepped onto the practice field at Dove Valley for a tryout. Three days later, he officially signed with the team as a free agent.
The team also waived rookie running back Chris Brown, who signed as a college free agent from the University of Oklahoma.
Lyons is a first-year wide receiver from the University of Kentucky. He finished his career at Kentucky with 141 receptions for 1,752 receiving yards and 18 touchdowns, ranked fifth, fourth and third, respectively, in school history.
He became the first Wildcat to post multiple touchdown receptions in three consecutive games as a sophomore in 2006.
He went to Holy Cross High School in New Orleans, where he totaled nearly 2,000 receiving yards and returned 15 kicks for touchdowns during his career.
