  Lions | Detroit meets with Devin Singletary    Fri Apr 19, 11:21 PM

Florida Atlantic RB Devin Singletary met with the Detroit Lions ahead of the 2019 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Singletary's game is all about after contract. Last year for FAU, Singletary had over 1,000 rush yards after contact and he knows how to get the most out of every carry. We should see Singletary go off the board in the fourth or fifth round of the 2019 NFL draft.

  Lions | T.J. Hockenson may be first-round option    Fri Apr 19, 06:04 PM

Iowa TE T.J. Hockenson likely will be an option for the Detroit Lions in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft, in the opinion of the Detroit Free Press' Dave Birkett.

Footballguys view: Hockenson has drawn comparisons to Rob Gronkowski in the pre-draft process. He may not be Gronk (who is?) but Hockenson can play at a high level. Hockenson is aggressive as a blocker, nuanced as a route runner and has strong hands. We should be talking about him plenty on Sundays.

  Lions | Detroit adds Tom Savage    Tue Apr 9, 07:11 PM

Free-agent QB Tom Savage (Bengals) was signed to an undisclosed deal by the Detroit Lions Tuesday, April 9.

Footballguys view: Savage will compete with Connor Cook to be the primary backup to Matthew Stafford in 2019. Don't be surprised if the Lions add a quarterback to the mix at some point (mid rounds?) in the 2019 NFL draft.

Iowa TE Noah Fant is visiting with the Detroit Lions on Monday, April 8.

Footballguys view: Fant might be an option for the Lions in the first round of the 2019 NFL draft. He's athletic and a receiving threat who plays like a super-sized wide receiver. Fant and his college teammate T.J. Hockenson will be among the first tight ends off the board.

  Lions | Detroit could trade back    Wed Apr 3, 04:33 PM

Detroit Lions general manager Bob Quinn said he would love to have more draft picks and wouldn't mind trading back 'a couple spots' in order to obtain said pick(s).

Footballguys view: The Lions have the 8th overall pick in the 2019 NFL draft. In order to trade back, some team behind them will have to covet a player still left on the board at that time.

Free-agent RB C.J. Anderson (Rams) signed a one-year deal with the Detroit Lions Monday, April 1, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: The Lions get their LeGarrette Blount replacement in Anderson. He finished the year strong for the Rams and was a key piece for them in the postseason. Anderson will split touches with Kerryon Johnson so the team can keep Johnson fresh. Expect Theo Riddick to have a role as the Lions pass-catching back too.

  Lions | More to come from Logan Thomas?    Fri Mar 29, 11:06 PM

Detroit Lions TE Logan Thomas has not 'hit his ceiling' yet, according to general manager Bob Quinn.

Footballguys view: Thomas has been a project at the tight end position for quite some time. A converted quarterback from Virginia Tech, Thomas has been trying to convert to tight end for most of his pro career. He had a career-high 12 catches for 77 yards in 2018 with the Bills. Thomas is a deep dynasty prospect in a cramped room now that he's with the Lions.

  Lions | Detroit will watch Kerryon Johnson's load    Thu Mar 28, 02:58 PM

Detroit Lions RB Kerryon Johnson won't be run into the ground this year coming off a knee injury late last season. 'We could win a couple [games] now, but if we wear this guy out and he doesn't help us in the long run then what's the trade off?' head coach Matt Patricia said.

Footballguys view: Johnson looked good during his rookie season in 2018...for 10 games at least. A knee injury knocked him out for the rest of the regular season but he expects to be available for OTAs and minicamp. Johnson has talent as a runner and receiver out of the backfield. He is the lead back for the Lions but it sounds like they'll monitor his snap count.

  Lions | Dontrelle Inman visiting Detroit    Mon Mar 25, 09:58 AM

Free-agent WR Dontrelle Inman (Colts) will visit the Detroit Lions Monday, March 25.

Footballguys view: It would be an interesting destination for Inman because there's no clear-cut path to playing time. The Lions added Danny Amendola earlier this offseason to be their no.3 wideout behind Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones. If added, Inman would be fourth-string at the position. We'll see if he just ends up going back to the Colts.

Free-agent CB Rashaan Melvin (Raiders) agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Detroit Lions Friday, March 22, that could be worth as much as $3.5 million.

  Lions | Andrew Donnal staying in Detroit    Fri Mar 22, 02:07 PM

Free-agent OL Andrew Donnal re-signed with the Detroit Lions on Friday, March 22. Terms of the contract were not immediately disclosed.

Footballguys view: Donnal was claimed after the Rams released him last year, and kept around even though he was banged up for the part of the year and often inactive. He'll try to push Tyrell Crosby to become the team's swing tackle this year.

  Lions | Detroit adds Logan Thomas     Thu Mar 21, 02:32 PM

Free-agent TE Logan Thomas (Bills) was signed to an undisclosed deal by the Detroit Lions Thursday, March 21.

Footballguys view: The Lions added Jesse James earlier this offseason as they revamp their tight end room. James will be the lead tight end, while Michael Roberts could be the red-zone threat. Thomas has athleticism but we'll have to wait and see how he fits in this cramped group of tight ends.

  Lions | Detroit gives Malcolm Brown offer sheet    Tue Mar 19, 06:00 PM

Los Angeles Rams restricted free-agent RB Malcolm Brown was given an offer sheet Tuesday, March 19, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Brown was an undrafted free agent, and the Rams gave him an 'original round tender' meaning they won't get compensation if they choose not to match the Lions offer. The Rams now have until Monday, March 24, to match the offer.

  Lions | Detroit adds Tommylee Lewis    Tue Mar 19, 03:03 PM

Free-agent WR Tommylee Lewis (Saints) was signed to an undisclosed deal by the Detroit Lions Tuesday, March 19.

Footballguys view: Lewis is a return man mostly. That's what he was for the Saints and that's what he should be with the Lions. Lewis only caught three passes for 60 yards and one receiving touchdown in 2018.

  Lions | Spencer Ware visiting Lions    Mon Mar 18, 10:41 AM

Free-agent RB Spencer Ware (Chiefs) is visiting the Detroit Lions Monday, March 18.

Footballguys view: The Lions have Kerryon Johnson as their lead back but they are clearly in search of better depth at the running back position. In 13 games with the Chiefs last season, Ware had 51 carries for 246 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns plus 20 catches for 224 yards.

Pittsburgh Steelers impending free-agent TE Jesse James agreed to a four-year, $25 million deal with the Detroit Lions, according to a source. He will receive $11 million fully guaranteed.

Footballguys view: James is a good blocker and an underrated receiver. He heads to the Lions where he will split snaps with Michael Roberts in some form of TEBC. James is the lead tight end and should be the team's leading receiver at the position.

Free-agent TE Dwayne Allen (Patriots) is scheduled to meet with the Detroit Lions after his visit with the Buffalo Bills, according to a source.
