Lions Re-sign Corey Smith

The Lions signed free agent defensive end Dewayne White this past weekend to add a great player to a position lacking a starter.  Now, a few days later, the Lions have brought back another player of the same position.

The Detroit Lions re-signed defensive end Corey Smith to a one-year contract on Monday.

Smith, who was an unrestricted free agent, had 10 tackles and two sacks in Detroit last season. He started in one of eight games after signing with the Lions in November.

Smith didn't see the field all that much last year, but that could certainly change in 2007.  He brings some needed depth to the defensive end position and is a solid player.  Plus, just as Dewayne White, Smith played under Marinelli at Tampa Bay a couple of years ago.  Pretty soon the entire team is going to be made up of former Rams and Buccaneers.
