Lions re-sign Amari Spievey (UPDATED)

The Detroit Lions have re-signed safety Amari Spievey.

Just after NFL free agency opened, the Detroit Lions re-signed a pair of their free agents. Safety Amari Spievey, who became a restricted free agent at 4 p.m. ET, has been re-signed to a one-year deal, according to Dave Birkett. Unrestricted free agent wide receiver Kassim Osgood has also been re-signed to a one-year deal, according to Pro Football Talk.

Spievey was the big question mark when it came to the Lions' restricted free agents. In the end, the Lions decided against tendering him a contract, instead agreeing to a separate deal with him. I'm sure the contract is worth less than any of the tenders, which is by design given Spievey's history with concussions.

Osgood is back with the Lions after spending the 2012 season in Detroit. He joined the Lions toward the end of training camp last year, and he was brought in to help improve their special teams units. It took some time for that to actually happen, but Osgood was one of the Lions' top special teams players in 2012, and that's why he has been brought back for 2013.

UPDATE: Osgood never ended up re-signing with the Lions.
