The first undrafted free agent defensive lineman to sign with the Detroit Lions this year appears to be Idaho's Michael Cosgrove. So far, we know about three defensive UDFAs reportedly set to join the Lions, but Cosgrove is the first on the D-line.
News of this signing was first reported by Derek Wieting.
