At this point of the offseason, most NFL teams aren’t scouring the open free agent market for players. Following last month’s draft, organizations like the Detroit Lions are looking forward to carrying their bloated rosters into OTA’s, minicamp and eventually training camp.
So if there is a perfect pairing to be had between a veteran free agent and a team, it’s likely been done already. Especially in Detroit, who added a pricey but talented pool of free agents earlier this year. One that included veterans like defensive end Trey Flowers, wide receiver Danny Amendola, cornerback Justin Coleman and tight end Jesse James.
