Former Lion Daniel Loper Signs With Oakland Raiders

It has been a relatively slow news week with the NFL Combine in the books and the deadline for the ongoing collective bargaining agreement negotiations not until later this week. With that in mind, let's go ahead and check in on where former Detroit Lions offensive guard Daniel Loper has landed.

Loper signed with the Oakland Raiders and got a two-year deal worth $1.9 and $2 million for 2011 and 2012, respectively. The Raiders also signed running back Michael Bennett, who got a one-year deal.

Because all roster movement around the NFL is at a standstill right now, these signings had to have been done last week. They were simply discovered this week, as players stopped being able to sign prior to the original extension of the CBA. The extension was merely for negotiations to continue uninterrupted; roster movement still came to a halt.

Loper was with the Lions during the 2009 season. He came to Detroit after being in Tennessee with Jim Schwartz, and the Lions let him go last April before the NFL Draft.
