Transactions Tracker: What the Lions Have Done in March So Far

The start of free agency has brought about a slew of stories ranging from rumors to trades to signings and to releases.  In the past week alone, there have been over 40 stories posted on Pride of Detroit, not to mention a countless number of FanPosts and FanShots as well.  With that in mind, I wouldn't be surprised if some of you have missed a story or two since things have been so busy.  In order to quickly catch you all up on everything that has happened in the last week, I put together a transactions tracker dating back to March 4, which is when things first started happening this month.  Check it out.
