On Monday, beginning at 4:00 p.m. ET, NFL teams will be allowed to begin signing free agents who have yet to land a new contract during the current offseason without those players counting against the NFL’s compensatory pick formula.
As we speak, the Lions have reportedly signed 13 undrafted rookie free agents, which according to Erik Schlitt, leaves 5 openings on the Lions 90-man roster.
Those openings will be filled with current free agents, and being veterans, they will have a solid chance to make the Lions’ eventual 53-man roster.
Here are five current free agents the Lions should consider signing after 4 p.m. on Monday.
- Malik Hooker, safety
- K.J. Wright, linebacker
- Gareon Conley, cornerback
- Tre Boston, safety
- Bashaud Breeland, cornerback
- J.B. Goodson, linebacker
- James Carpenter, guard
Nation, which of these current veteran free agents would you like to see on the Detroit Lions?
