BREAKING NEWS: £25 million player allegedly on a plane amid Lions rumors…..

Lucas logged only six defensive snaps during his time in Detroit. But he’s potential nickelback depth for the 49ers, and should compete for a significant role on special teams. The 27-year-old was not tendered a new contract in restricted free agency, and was free to sign anywhere. Lucas played his college ball at Arizona State and is from Arizona, so this move gets him closer to home.

The Lions have been moving pieces around on Dave Fipp’s special teams group during the past couple of weeks. They made Jalen Reeves-Maybin the highest-pair core special teams player in the league. But the Lions also lost Anthony Pittman and now Lucas from that unit.

They retained Khalil Dorsey, who adds return ability while being able to do handle Lucas’ role on that phase. And Malcolm Rodriguez proved to be someone to watch as a potential game-changer for that phase of the game.

ALLEN PARK — Chase Lucas is heading to the San Francisco 49ers on a one-year deal after two seasons with the Detroit Lions, per his agency.

The 2022 seventh-round pick appeared in 12 games for the Lions this past season, securing a key role on special teams with 260 snaps from that phase.
