07:10 PM ET 06.17 | Mini-camp might be over, but Lions general manager Martin Mayhew and Co. never take a break when an opportunity arises to improve the roster. The team added another body to the tight end mix on Monday with the addition of Matt Veldman. The Lions signed the former Jacksonville Jaguar to a contract following a workout in Allen Park on Monday. Veldman (6-7, 255) was an undrafted free agent out of North Dakota State in 2012. He signed with the Jaguars following the draft, and was going to be their third tight end had he not torn his ACL in the preseason. He spent all of last season on injured/reserve.
