Johnny LawrenceCorrespondent IApril 17, 2009

Free agent wide receiver Ronald Curry agreed to a one-year contract today with the Detroit Lions.

Financial terms were not specified, but the 29-year-old pass catcher adds depth to a shallow position under new head coach Jim Schwartz.

A seventh-round draft pick in 2002, Curry reeled in 193 balls in 76 games with Oakland.

He spent the last seven seasons with the Raiders, catching a career-high 62 passes for 727 yards in 2006.

A 6-foot-2, 210-pound receiver, he rounds out a receiving corps that includes 6-foot-5, 235-pound Calvin Johnson, and the newly acquired 6-foot-3, 211-pound Bryant Johnson.
