Lions add receivers Hatcher, Fuller to training camp roster

Hatcher spent a majority of the last four seasons in the NFL, including a stint with the Oakland Raiders where he was promoted to the active roster in week one of 2018. The Tulsa, Oklahoma native also spent time on the practice roster for both the Green Bay Packers and New York Jets. Keon enjoyed four solid seasons at the University of Arkansas (2013-16) where he suited up in 37 games and recorded 127 catches for 1,845 yards and 18 touchdowns while also chipping in on the ground with 21 carries for 264 yards and one major. To cap off his NCAA career, Keon was named to the Pro Football Focus All-SEC Second Team and NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.
