Thus far, during free agency the Lions have made several moves that look like depth signings. Guard, Kenny Wiggins, and guard-center, Wesley Johnson, were brought in to add competition for Joe Dahl, Glasgow, and Lang on the interior of the line.
Rick Wagner was signed to play right tackle last year, but no tackles have been signed to address the problems of 2017, in this off-season.
Additionally, in recent comments, both Bob Quinn and Matt Patricia have indicated that they like the changes to the roster.
When asked specifically about improving the run game, Quinn said this to the Detroit season ticket holders:
"“It’™s not just one thing,” Quinn told DetroitLions.com about what ailed the run game last season. “œYou can’t just look at the run game last year, which I’™ve said it before, it was not good enough last year, and it will be better this year … It’s the combination of all those things. It’™s the running game. It’s the scheme. It’s the blocking. It’s the health. It’™s the durability. It’s all those things in one. I feel real confident as I stand here today that its going to be a lot better.”"
Other than the two free agent linemen, and added running back, no additional plans to address the line or improve the production up front were listed.
It is widely speculated that Detroit will add another running back via the draft, but this close to the event Quinn is not divulging his strategy.
