An overview of the Detroit Lions roster with a focus on the defense and special teams.
On Monday, we took a look at the offensive side of the Detroit Lions roster. Now it's time to turn our attention to the defense and special teams. Just as we did with the offense, the defense and special teams are broken down by position and contract status. You can find out which players are under contract and for how long, as well as which players are set to become free agents this offseason. (Once again, for salary information, check out the Free Press' cap breakdown.)
