While the headlines for the Lions were taken up by the re-signing of Tahir Whitehead and Marvin Jones' arrival in Detroit, the organization kept making moves. Bob Quinn's front office made another depth/special teams move on Thursday when they signed former Cleveland Brown Johnson Bademosi to a two-year deal. Elsewhere, Corey Fuller signed his tendered exclusive rights free agent contract.

Johnson Bademosi was an undrafted free agent out of Stanford, signed by the Browns in 2012. He made a name for himself as a special teams player in his rookie year and contributed as a part-time player at cornerback. He continued to make exceptional contributions on the Browns special teams for four seasons.

According to Josh Katzenstein of the Detroit News, Bademosi's contract is worth $4.5 million over two years, with about $1.5 million in potential performance escalators.

At least one Lion is very happy to see Bademosi join the organization: Johnson's former teammate at Stanford, Alex Carter.

Corey Fuller was tendered a contract back on March 3 along with the other five Lions ERFAs. He signed the contract on Thursday, making his return to the Lions official. Fuller will probably continue to remain a depth option at wide receiver for the team.
