While the Detroit Lions continue to pursue at least one free agent who wasn’t with the franchise last season, here’s a look at where the team’s own free agents stand heading into another week of free agency.
Reggie Bush, RB: The Lions cut him to pick up some room under the salary cap after he spent 2014 struggling with an ankle injury. He signed with San Francisco over the weekend, although terms have yet to be disclosed. Since he was cut by the Lions, he will not count toward any compensatory selections.
Jed Collins, FB: The fullback signed a veteran minimum deal of $745,000 in base salary with a $65,000 signing bonus and a cap hit of $650,000 with Dallas last week.
Kellen Davis, TE: Nothing known or reported.
Rob Sims, LG: Detroit’s left guard in 2014 has not signed anywhere and has not reportedly taken any visits. He is still a possibility for a return to the Lions, although the team had Justin Blalock in for a visit.
Dominic Raiola, C: I’ve been told by a source there has been no movement on anything for the veteran center at this point.
Corey Hilliard, OT: Nothing known or reported at this point.
Garrett Reynolds, OL: Nothing known or reported at this point.
Ndamukong Suh, DT: Signed a massive six-year, $114 million deal with Miami including $59,955 million guaranteed and a $25 million signing bonus. The first three years of his base salary are fully guaranteed, and the fourth and fifth years of his deal become fully guaranteed on the fifth day of each league year.
Nick Fairley, DT: He signed a one-year deal worth $5 million with St. Louis, including $2.5 million in base salary, a workout bonus of $500,000, and a roster bonus of $2 million. On the roster bonus, he’ll get $1.5 million up front and an additional $31,250 per game he is active in 2015 up to $500,000. He also has another $2 million he can earn in incentives.
C.J. Mosley, DT: Nothing known or reported to this point.
Andre Fluellen, DT: Nothing known or reported to this point.
George Johnson, DE: He was given an original-round tender by the Lions ($1.542 million) as a restricted free agent but can try to search out better offers the Lions can match. Johnson still has over a month before he needs to sign his tender.
Ashlee Palmer, LB: Nothing known or reported to this point.
Rashean Mathis, CB: The Lions would like him back and Mathis has expressed an interest in returning, but nothing is known to this point as to a timetable.
Cassius Vaughn, CB: Nothing known or reported to this point.
Josh Thomas, CB: Nothing known or reported to this point.
Others: Quarterbacks Dan Orlovsky and Kellen Moore; Defensive end Darryl Tapp; Safety Isa Abdul-Quddus; Linebacker Josh Bynes; Long snapper Don Muhlbach and Kicker Matt Prater all re-signed with the Lions either before or during free agency.
