Jeremy Ross caught two passes for 65 yards and a touchdown against the Jets Week 4.

Ross got behind the Jets' secondary for a 59-yard score in the second quarter. He was only targeted once more after the score. Ross is on pace for 28 catches for 432 yards and four touchdown this season.

The Oakland Press' Paula Pasche believes WR/KR Jeremy Ross is in the mix to be the Lions' No. 3 wide receiver.

Ross flashed on special teams last season, scoring two return TDs and finishing near the top of the league in both kickoff and punt return average. Ross failed to make an impact on offense, though, posting a meager 6-67-1 stat line. With only injury-prone Ryan Broyles and replacement-level Kris Durham ahead of him on the depth chart, Ross has an opportunity to seize a bigger role in Detroit's offense this time around. We still don't expect standard-league fantasy impact.

Lions extended exclusive rights free agent tenders to WR/KR Jeremy Ross, LB Julian Stanford, CB Chris Greenwood, and TE Matt Veldman.

Ross is the most notable name here. He averaged 29.3 yards per kickoff return with a touchdown and 16.2 yards on punts with another score after signing off the practice squad last season. Ross won't be in the mix for significant 2014 offensive snaps, but should have Detroit's return duties locked up.
Mar 7 - 2:07 PM

Jeremy Ross caught a five-yard touchdown in Detroit's Week 13 win over the Packers.

Ross stole some snaps from Nate Burleson in the slot, but his second-quarter touchdown was his only grab of the afternoon. Primarily a special teamer, Ross remains miles from fantasy relevance.

Lions promoted WR Jeremy Ross from the practice squad.

Ross was signed to the practice squad after being waived by the Packers on September 23. He should play Sunday and can also help on special teams. The Lions cut tight end Dorin Dickerson in a corresponding move.

Packers waived WR Jeremy Ross.

The second-year undrafted free agent had appeared in all three games this season, making one catch in the process. He fumbled a kickoff in Sunday's loss, however. Ross should be stashed on the practice squad provided he clears waivers.
