2017 Detroit Lions Undrafted Free Agent Tracker


Check Back Here For Updates On The Latest Undrafted Free Agent Signings For Detroit!


With the second NFL Draft under Bob Quinn finished up, it is time to see who the undrafted free agent signings that Detroit is making in 2017.  Follow the action here while we track the Detroit Lions’ actions in grabbing some undrafted free agents. Remember folks, these players are not a member of the Detroit Lions until they officially sign a contract with the team.

If you missed out on the draft this year, check out the 2017 draft class:

We’ll do our best here at DLP to keep you up-to-date with the action as it happens live. We will include try-outs in this list, they will be annotated with an asterisk, just to give you the full list of players to watch out for as any of these guys could end up on the 53 man roster once the preseason is over. Could Detroit bring in the next Antonio Gates, Kurt Warner, or Brian Waters with these signings? Sure maybe not those exact positions are needs for Detroit, but star players that Detroit can sign once the draft is over is a big help and steal for the organization. Everyone that is signed has a chance to become an all-star.
