Offensive tackle Chris Kemme will get a chance to continue his football career with the 0-16 Detroit Lions.
Kemme played in 47 of 49 possible games in his four years at Akron. He was central to the resurrection of the Zips' line over the past two seasons.
He is the third Zip to sign a pro contract, following Bryan Williams (Browns) and Brandon Anderson (Colts). Don't be surprised if you see long snapper Brian Flaherty and linebacker Kevin Grant catch on somewhere, as well.
