Lions Sign 11 Undrafted Rookie Free Agents
Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Detroit Lions general manager Martin Mayhew is famous for saying the draft is not the finish line when it comes to building a roster. Well, true to his word, Mayhew and the Lions hit the phones immediately following the NFL Draft Saturday and got to work signing talent that wasn't selected in the top 254 picks of the NFL Draft. “(It's) really important,” Mayhew said Saturday of the undrafted rookie free agent signing period. “We got some input from Brian (Xanders) from things that they had done in Denver and we changed it up a little bit and we'll see how it goes. But we're wrapping that up right now and class is pretty much signed up right now.”
