Jack Fox among 3 exclusive rights free agents tendered by Detroit Lions

With free agency approaching later this month, Detroit Lions GM Brad Holmes remains hard at work.

This afternoon, the team announced they’ve tendered a trio of exclusive rights free agents:

The players tendered are punter Jack Fox, LB/FB Jason Cabinda and OT Matt Nelson.

For those unfamiliar with the NFL tender process:

“The ERFA tender applies to any player whose contract is expiring and he has no more than two accrued seasons in the NFL (an accrued season is a season with at least six games on the 90 man roster or one game this year if they were on the teams opening week roster).”

The offers are for one year, and the players are not permitted to negotiate with any other team.

The Lions already made a personnel move earlier today, informing Desmond Trufant that he won’t be brought back.
