Detroit Lions Tender Offers To Dylan Gandy, Prince Miller

Two more Detroit Lions players have been tendered offers: offensive guard/center Dylan Gandy and cornerback Prince Miller.

Gandy's tender is at the original-round level. Since he was a fourth-round pick of the Indianapolis Colts way back in 2005, that means that signing elsewhere would give the Lions a fourth-round selection if they decided not to match the offer. Like many players, this may all be a moot point in the new CBA, as Gandy has been in the league six years and will likely be considered an unrestricted free agent.

Miller joined the Lions back in December when he was signed off the Baltimore Ravens' practice squad. 2010 was his first season in the league, so he was tendered as an exclusive rights player. This means that he can't negotiate with other teams and has to either sign the tender or sit out the season. Basically, it means he will be back in Detroit for training camp.

In other roster news, fullback Matt Clapp, who was brought in as an undrafted free agent last year and released in August, signed with the Lions back on Feb. 1. I know a few of you have mentioned seeing him on the roster, but I only noticed today that the Lions' transactions page includes the move.
