Pride of Detroit's FanPosts section is now breaking roster news. As mentioned by lions2544, the Detroit Lions have agreed to sign undrafted free agent Jeff Maddux. Maddux, an offensive guard from Central Michigan, had been playing Arena Football.
With Maddux set to join the team, the Lions are now planning to sign or already have signed the following 10 UDFAs:
- WR Marcus Harris (Murray State)
- WR Keith Smith (Purdue)
- WR Jared Jenkins (Wisconsin-Stevens Point)
- TE Preston Dial (Alabama)
- OG Jeff Maddux (Central Michigan)
- LB Quentin Davie (Northwestern)
- LB Cobrani Mixon (Kent State)
- LB DeJuan Fulghum (Texas Southern)
- S Ricardo Silva (Hampton)
- P Ryan Donahue (Iowa)
I would expect the Lions to release an official list of undrafted free agent signings either later today or sometime tomorrow. While these players have agreed to deals, they still have to come to the team facility in Allen Park to officially sign. Maddux, for example, is on the road from Cleveland to sign his deal. Until the signings are actually made, I wouldn't expect to hear anything about UDFAs from the Lions.
