Lions officially sign Jake McQuaide, add Bruce Irvin to practice squad

USA Today

A couple of Detroit Lions roster moves that were widely anticipated became official on Wednesday. The Lions signed long snapper Jake McQuaide from the practice squad to the active roster. Detroit also added veteran EDGE Bruce Irvin to the practice squad to fill the spot opened by McQuaide’s promotion.

McQuaide played in the Week 10 win over the Chargers as a practice squad elevation. Regular long snapper Scott Daly went on injured reserve after Week 8. McQuaide, 35, is now the oldest player on the Lions roster. He’s in his 13th NFL season, the first 10 of which were with the Los Angeles Rams.

Irvin is technically older than McQuaide at 36, but the practice squad doesn’t count in the official tally. His addition was known on Tuesday after working out for the Lions, but did not become official until Wednesday’s practice.
