This may not be the most active free agency for the Detroit Lions, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be interesting. Detroit currently have 18 players set to hit free agency, and now that the “legal tampering period” has opened up at Noon ET on Monday, all of them are free to negotiate with other teams (through their agents).

And the Lions won’t be completely inactive either. They may be dealing with limited cap space, but they are likely to make more cap-saving moves, and they’ll still be targeting some low-to-mid range free agents to fill out their roster. And who knows? Maybe they get creative with some money and make a big splash or two.

Throughout it all, we’ll have this open thread for you to chat in while the news rolls in from across the NFL. And if you’re seeking news specifically about the Detroit Lions, our embedded Twitter list below will offer an updated list of tweets from the Detroit beat.
