AP Source: Daniels reaches agreement with Lions

By  | 

DETROIT (AP) -- A person with knowledge of the agreement says the Detroit Lions have reached a one-year deal with defensive lineman Mike Daniels.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity Friday because the deal has not been announced. The 30-year-old Daniels, a former Pro Bowler, was released earlier this week after seven seasons with Green Bay. Daniels started nine games for the Packers last season.

The Lions have overhauled their defensive line after going 6-10 last season. Detroit added edge rusher Trey Flowers earlier in the offseason, and the Lions also return defensive tackle Damon Harrison, whom they acquired in a trade in the middle of last season.

Daniels made the Pro Bowl as an alternate after the 2017 season. He finished last season on injured reserve after a foot injury.
