Daniel Helm to sign with Detroit Lions

According to reports, the Detroit Lions are signing free agent, Daniel Helm.

According to a report from Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press, the Detroit Lions are signing tight end, Daniel Helm. Helm will replace tight end Shane Zylstra, who suffered what will almost certainly be a season-ending injury during Monday's training camp practice.

UPDATE: Dave Birkett just deleted his tweet indicating that the Lions are signing Helm. Stay Tuned!

Why it Matters for Daniel Helm and the Detroit Lions

With Zylstra suffering a devastating injury on Monday, the Lions are in need of a tight end, and if Birkett's original tweet turns out to be true (maybe he jumped the gun a bit), then Helm would slide in as a replacement.
