At 10 a.m. (Eastern Time) on Tuesday, NFL teams will be able to start signing undrafted free agents. Although the signing period hasn't started yet, there has already been quite a bit of activity as teams line up deals. None of the deals are anything more than an agreement, but it's unlikely you will see any players backing out on a deal with one team to take one with another.
When 10 a.m. hits, the Detroit Lions will have at least six undrafted free agents ready to sign. The reason I say at least is because there could be other deals lined up that we haven't heard about. Six players that we do know about are in agreement to join the Lions, and they are as follows:
- WR Marcus Harris (Murray State)
- TE Preston Dial (Alabama)
- LB Quentin Davie (Northwestern)
- LB DeJuan Fulghum (Texas Southern)
- S Ricardo Silva (Hampton)
- P Ryan Donahue (Iowa)
In case you missed it, there was also a report saying Binghamton cornerback Matt Kessler had agreed to a deal with the Lions. The problem I immediately discovered with this piece of news is that Binghamton doesn't actually have a football program, and we later found out the report was based on a made-up tip.
As it stands at the time of this post, only six UDFAs that we know about are set to join the Lions.
