Free agency rolls on as teams across the league continue to work on their rosters.
The Lions have a pretty good history of success in the secondary free agent market and beyond, so this likely won't be the last of the signings.
The moves in free agency so far have helped open up the team's draft options.
“The fact that we were successful (in free agency) gives us all kinds of options in the draft,” team president Rod Wood said in an interview with WJR. “We have the highest pick since I’ve been in this role and since Bob Quinn has been our general manager, which opens up the draft additionally to you, because you’re going to have guys that were not available at No. 22, where we’ve been drafting, or No. 20.
“We can look for the best player that fits our scheme, the best player that fills a need or the best players that adds depth to the team.”
