In addition to the Cowboys, free agent WR Kris Durham recently worked out for the Saints.

The Saints went with Lance Lewis over Durham, who has been abysmal in past opportunities to play extensively. He was arguably the worst wideout in the entire NFL in 2013, when Durham served as the Lions' No. 3 receiver.

DallasCowboys.com expects the team to add one or two veteran receivers before OTAs.

Kris Durham and A.J. Jenkins both worked out for Dallas this week. Durham spent time with Cowboys OC Scott Linehan in Detroit, so adding him could make sense for Dallas. The Cowboys have no veteran talent behind Dez Bryant, Terrance Williams and Cole Beasley.

The Titans declined to tender restricted free agent WR Kris Durham.

Tennessee wasted a roster spot for all of 2014 on Durham, who appeared in four games. GM Ruston Webster needs to make better use of roster space this year.

Kris Durham caught zero passes on two targets in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Colts.

Durham played in four games for the Titans this season, catching six passes for 54 yards. The impending free agent will keep getting NFL sniffs because he's 6-foot-6, but Durham is flat-out terrible and drop prone.

Titans declared WR Kris Durham, WR T.J. Graham, QB Zach Mettenberger, CB Brandon Harris, LB Zach Brown, OT Byron Stingily and DL DaQuan Jones inactive for Week 2 against the Cowboys.

Durham was claimed off waivers from the Lions at final cuts, but should be a weekly inactive for one of the league's deeper receiver corps. The same is true of Graham. Brown is expected to miss the entire season with a torn pectoral.

Titans claimed WR Kris Durham off waivers from the Lions, and CB Brandon Harris off waivers from the Texans.

According to Pro Football Focus, Durham dropped 10-of-82 catchable targets in 2013 with a catch rate of 46.3 percent, which ranked 104th among 111 qualifying wide receivers. He's a downgrade from Michael Preston. Harris is also a perennially disappointing player despite his second-round draft pedigree.

Lions waived WR Kris Durham.

Durham lasted longer in Detroit than anyone expected. The Lions finally upgraded their receiving corps in the offseason. They can finally say goodbye to Durham. He dropped too many passes and has always been a fringe talent.

ESPN Lions reporter Michael Rothstein says it is "tough to see" both WR Kris Durham and WR Kevin Ogletree making Detroit's 53-man roster.

With the infusion of pass-catching talent in Detroit this offseason, fringe players Durham and Ogletree have become expendable. Durham was a drop machine in 2013, and Ogletree has been ineffective throughout his career. Both players are best suited as No. 4 or 5 receivers in real football and ignorable in fantasy.

Lions extended an exclusive rights free agent tender to WR Kris Durham.

He's now owed $570,000. Durham, 26, appeared in all 16 games in 2013, starting 13 and catching 38 passes for 490 yards with two touchdowns. This was never by design, of course, as Durham was forced onto the first team by injury. He registered a whopping ten drops and ranked among the worst wideouts in the NFL in "catch rate." Durham is best suited as a No. 4 or 5 receiver.

Updating a previous item, Lions WR Kris Durham is an exclusive rights free agent this offseason.

Retaining him will cost the Lions under $700,000, so he's very likely to return to Detroit. It was originally believed Durham was a restricted free agent, which would've made him a $1.389 million-or-more player. Durham finished 2013 with 38 catches for 490 yards and two touchdowns, making 13 starts.

Restricted free agent Kris Durham is expected to receive an original-round tender from the Lions.

Durham was originally a fourth-round pick by Seattle, so no team is going to surrender a fourth-rounder for his services. The low tender would pay Durham $1.323 million in 2014, as long as he makes the team, which is no sure thing. The Lions desperately need to add one or two receivers this offseason. In an ideal world, Durham would be nothing more than a No. 4 or 5 wideout.

Kris Durham caught two balls for 14 yards in the Lions' Week 16 loss to the Giants.

Durham was low in the pecking order for targets in this one, even with Calvin Johnson (knee) noticeably hobbled. Joique Bell, Joseph Fauria, and Nate Burleson all played more prominent roles. The Lions face Minnesota to close out the regular season. Durham is a role-playing No. 3 receiver in OC Scott Linehan's offense.

Kris Durham caught one pass for five yards in Week 15 versus the Ravens.

Durham was targeted four times on the night. He was the intended receiver in the end zone on a play where Lardarius Webb clearly grabbed Durham's left arm, forcing Durham to try and make a one-handed catch. There should have been a flag for defensive pass interference. Durham is barely on the WR5 radar.

Kris Durham did not catch a pass in Sunday's Week 14 loss at Philadelphia.

Durham saw three targets, often failing to keep his footing in eight inches of snow. The conditions were actually worse as players got closer to the sidelines, where Durham operates. Regardless, he'll just be a WR4/5 against the Ravens in Week 15. Slot man Nate Burleson is the No. 2 receiver in the passing game.
