Detroit has signed wide receiver Ryan Broyles, defensive end Ronnell Lewis, linebacker Tahir Whitehead, cornerbacks Chris Greenwood and Jonte Green along with linebacker Travis Lewis.

The Lions also signed 17 undrafted rookies, including quarterback Kellen Moore and wide receiver Troy Burrell, a former Wayne State standout and Port Huron native.
