The Detroit Lions have been active in NFL free agency 2023, experiencing both additions and subtractions. So for convenience, we’re tracking all the signings and departures in one place.
We’re onto Day 2 of the new league year, which kicked off Wednesday afternoon after two days of the negotiating window, where teams and players could agree to deals. Signings and trades can now become official.
The Lions, under the leadership of general manager Brad Holmes and coach Dan Campbell, have been aggressive right from the start of free agency, attacking the defensive line and secondary, and making a surprise move at running back. They still have spots to fill at receiver and backup quarterback, and depth to address.
