Just because the bulk of free agency has quieted down, doesn't mean the Lions are standing pat. General manager Bob Quinn has continued to add to Detroit's roster.
On Monday, the team announced the signing of free agent defensive tackle Jordan Hill. Hill enters his fifth NFL season after previous stints with the Seahawks and Jaguars.

Continuing to address the defensive line, the Lions re-signed one of their own Tuesday in defensive end Armonty Bryant. Bryant had five tackles, three sacks and one forced fumble in five games for the Lions last season.
Guard T.J. Lang has yet to take one practice snap with his new teammates on the Lions' offensive line, but he is already making an impact.
Lang, who came from a winning culture in Green Bay, told his linemates he has high hopes for the group.
"The last thing I relayed to them all was, I really think we can form one of the best units in the league with all the talent we have," is how Lang recalled the conversation in a conference call interview.
"I thought it was very impressive last year with how much shuffling they had to do, and how they were still able to handle it, being such a young group."
