Lions Free Agency: Detroit Picks Up LS Matt Camilli, Releases G Pat Boyle

Free agency signings around the NFL have started to slow down with the draft now a far memory and most teams settling on which undrafted FA's they want to keep going into camps. There's still one or two a week going on, and the Detroit Lions made a minor swap on Thursday.

As reported by Lions writer Tim Twentyman, the Lions have signed long snapper Matt Camilli after releasing guard Pat Boyle to open a roster spot.

Camilli was originally picked up by the Eagles as a UDFA before being released. Boyle had been with the Lions the entire off season up until he was released.

Teams don't tend to carry more than one long snapper on their final rosters come the NFL season, so Camilli is likely to only stick as a camp body.
