The Detroit Lions changed up some of their training camp bodies on Wednesday night by bringing back one free agent and signing another. The Lions re-signed offensive guard Pat Boyle, who was released in June to make room for long snapper Matt Camilli. The Lions also signed defensive tackle Tracy Robertson.
Interestingly, the Lions ended up releasing Camilli to make room for Boyle this time around. Boyle was off the roster for a month or so because the Lions signed Camilli, and now the opposite has happened, allowing Boyle, who was originally signed earlier this offseason as an undrafted free agent out of Temple, to return.
Robertson was signed after the Lions released defensive tackle Michael Cosgrove. Robertson, like Cosgrove, is an undrafted free agent. The Lions added Cosgrove out of Idaho earlier this offseason, and Robertson comes to town after playing at Baylor and spending some time with the Houston Texans earlier this offseason.
