In a press release sent out Friday night, the Detroit Lions announced that they have re-signed many of their unrestricted, restricted and exclusive-rights free agents. Some of these moves were already known about before Friday, but others were kept under wraps until now.
Below is a list of the players that have been re-signed.
- Lions unrestricted free agents: QB Drew Stanton, OG/C Dylan Gandy, CB Brandon McDonald, S John Wendling, K Dave Rayner
- Restricted free agents: FB Jerome Felton, DT Andre Fluellen
- Exclusive-rights free agents: WR Stefan Logan, OT Corey Hilliard, LB Ashlee Palmer, LB Korey Bosworth, LB Caleb Campbell, CB Prince Miller, CB Paul Pratt, S Randy Phillips
The Lions also confirmed that wide receiver Bryant Johnson and linebacker Jordon Dizon have been released. Those moves leaked out earlier in the week and came as no surprise since the Lions were able to shed some salary and create some cap space by getting rid of them.
In addition to these moves, the Lions confirmed the signings of some free agents from other teams. You can check out those moves in another StoryStream.
UPDATE: The Brandon McDonald signing was officially announced on Saturday.
