Lions re-sign Willie Young, Brian Robiskie

USA TODAY Sports

The Detroit Lions have gotten defensive end Willie Young and wide receiver Brian Robiskie back under contract.

The Detroit Lions have re-signed defensive end Willie Young and wide receiver Brian Robiskie. The two moves were completed on Monday and in time for the start of the Lions' offseason training program.

Young entered free agency as a restricted free agent, and he was tendered at the second-round level. He didn't sign his tender, though. Tim Twentyman reports that the Lions actually signed Young to a separate one-year deal. I'm not sure why, and it's not clear if his deal is worth more or less than his tender, which was set to be worth $2.023 million in 2013.

Robiskie is back with the Lions after being released a week ago. The speculation last week was that the Lions let him go so he could find a better opportunity elsewhere (i.e. a team with fewer wide receivers), but now he is back on the roster after agreeing to a one-year deal.

In other free agency news, the Lions have officially re-signed restricted free agent Jason Fox and their four exclusive-rights free agents.
