Your New Lions! 4

6:55 PM 30 Apr 2013

This is your one stop shop for all of the Lions recent acquisitions for the 2013 offseason, including draft picks, UDFAs, position changes, and Free Agent acquisitions.  As the season draws nearer, it’s always good to showcase your new Lions that have been added in the hopes of improving on their 4-12 disappointment.  All scouting reports linked in bold are from here at The Silverdome Blues, while any others are from other sites, which I will replace with my own as I complete them.  Since I know some of you like to know which guys we HAD on the roster, as well as who is there, now, I’m keeping anyone the Lions sign and simply crossing them out if they’re cut.  A little sloppy, sure, but it’s as accurate as they come!

Position Changes

Dominique Curry was converted from Wide Receiver to Tight End.  At 6’2″ 223 lbs., Curry will obviously have to put on bulk for the switch and will probably never be anything more than a receiving type HBack.
