Lions Re-Sign Copeland Bryan

Pro Football Talk is reporting that the Lions have re-signed defensive end Copeland Bryan

Bryan became a restricted free agent on March 5, but because he was not tendered an offer by the Lions, he was free to sign wherever he wanted.  Had he signed an offer sheet, the Lions would not have had an opportunity to match the offer, nor would they have received any compensation for him.  That obviously wasn't a concern to the Lions, though, which makes sense considering Bryan has now re-signed with the team.

UPDATE: Bryan's deal is for one year and has been confirmed by his agent.
