The Detroit Lions may be in full preparation mode for this Sunday’s game against the Indianapolis Colts, but that did not stop GM Bob Quinn from making a couple of roster moves on Friday.

According to the Lions, they have signed OL Chase Farris to the team’s practice squad and released RB George Winn. Details of the contract have not been disclosed.

Farris returns to Detroit after originally being signed earlier in the year as an undrafted rookie free agent out of Ohio State.

In addition, it is being reported by Ian Rapoport that the Lions will make Sam Martin the third highest paid punter in the NFL by agreeing to a 4-year extension.

Since being drafted by the Lions in 2013, Martin has emerged as one of the best punters in the NFL. In 2015, the 26-year-old punter had a net average of 42.0 yards per punt, including 25 which were downed inside the 20 yard line.

These moves of course come in addition of reports that the Lions and Theo Riddick have agreed on a 3-year extension worth $12.75 million.
