Fales joins the Lions after a two-year stint (2017-18) with the Miami Dolphins, where he appeared in two games and completed 29-of-43 passes for 265 yards, one touchdown and one interception in that span. He originally entered the League in 2014 as a sixth-round draft selection (183rd overall) by the Chicago Bears out of San Jose State.
