How about some good news to start the week?

The Detroit Lions have gotten a deal done with rookie Riley Reiff, according to Tim Twentyman. Before Monday morning, Reiff was the only rookie without a deal for the Lions. There hadn't been any updates from the Lions or Reiff about the status of a deal, but in the end they were able to get one done on the day that rookies report to training camp.

It was a good sign on Sunday when it was reported that Reiff was en route to Michigan. This indicated that a holdout wasn't in the cards. When he was picked a holdout wasn't expected, and although a deal took longer to get done than I anticipated, one was completed with a few days to spare before training camp officially begins.

Details on the terms of Reiff's deal are not currently available. We know it will be four years with a team option for a fifth year, but the amount of guaranteed money and worth of the deal haven't leaked out yet.
