The Detroit Lions were very quiet for most of the day yesterday with no rumors or visits announced. All at once it seemed, the Lions signed some players. They started the news off with the re-signing of Tahir Whitehead who was visiting Tampa Bay at the time. Whitehead got a 2 year deal averaging about 4 million per season. The move also shores up the linebacker positions as he is likely to play middle with Josh Bynes and DeAndre Levy on the outside.
The Lions followed that up with two depth signings. They added Cleveland cornerback and special teams player Johnson Bademosi on a 2 year deal averaging 2.25 million a season and the signed Buffalo defensive tackle Stefan Charles to a 1 year deal. The financial terms of Charles’ deal are not yet known.
Today looks to be equally quiet with only two known visits scheduled. They expect to host left tackle Russell Okung from the Seahawks today if he makes it out of New York without a contract. They also will have Saints safety Rafael Bush in for a visit. With an open safety spot on defense, Bush is likely being looked at for that starting spot.
