Detroit Lions to sign DT Mike Daniels

According to multiple reports, the Detroit Lions are finalizing a deal with former Green Bay Packers defensive tackle, Mike Daniels.

UPDATE: The contract appears to be just a one-year deal worth up to $9.1-million.

Daniels, 30, was a surprise cut just a couple days ago and had plenty of interest on the free agent market.

In Daniels seven-year career, he made the Pro Bowl in 2017, started 72 games, accumulated 236 total tackles, 47 tackles for loss, 68 QB hits, and 29.0 sacks — all while in Green Bay. He was originally drafted in the fourth round of the 2012 NFL Draft out of Iowa.

A big loss for the Packers is now a huge gain for the division rival Lions. This move has to put the Lions in contention for one of the best defensive lines in the league.
