2018 NFL free agency tracker: Live updates, rumors, signings for the Detroit Lions

Tracking every rumor and piece of news during the Lions’ free agency period.

NFL: Detroit Lions at New Orleans Saints Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

It’s finally here! It’s been over three months since the Detroit Lions played a football, but our patience is about to pay off.

Okay, we’re still six months from meaningful football, but free agency is here! The legal tampering period is scheduled to start at noon ET on Monday, and considering all of the unbelievable trades that have already been agreed to, this free agency period promises to be one of the craziest of all time.

The Lions have mostly stayed away from the excitement thus far, but with reported interest in Richard Sherman and DeMarco Murray, it appears that the Lions won’t remain idle for long.

So instead of staying glued to Twitter all day or refreshing, you can just park it right here. Every rumor that comes in, every player meeting that is schedule, every “agree-to-terms” report will all be posted right here on this page. Below you’ll see every substantiated rumor related to the Lions from now until the end of free agency. We’ll be sure to have this post pinned towards the top of our front page so that it won’t be hard to find, but we recommend bookmarking it anyways.
