Lions Agree To Deal With Draft Pick Bill Bentley

The Detroit Lions have agreed to terms on a deal with another draft pick. The latest pick to get a deal done is third-round selection Bill Bentley, as reported first by Tim Twentyman.

This means first-round pick Riley Reiff is the only member of the Lions' 2012 draft class who hasn't agreed to a deal or signed a contract yet. Six of the draft picks officially signed on Thursday, and Bentley will become the seventh on Friday once everything is officially signed.

Given how quickly signings have been moving, it seems unlikely that negotiations with Reiff will drag on for too much longer. I'd anticipate a deal being done soon.
