Detroit Lions sign C Evan Boehm, activate OG Evan Heim off reserve-COVID list

The Detroit Lions made two moves to bolster their depleted offensive line Monday, signing free agent center Evan Boehm and activating guard Evan Heim from the reserve/COVID-19 list.

"If your name's Evan there's a good chance you can play offensive line for us," Lions coach Dan Campbell joked before the start of practice Monday.

Boehm, who visited the Lions and New York Giants last week, was an occasional starter in his first four NFL seasons with the Arizona Cardinals, Indianapolis Colts and Miami Dolphins. He also had brief stints with the Los Angeles Rams and Buffalo Bills.
