Not surprising, but the Detroit Lions have signed 10 players to futures contracts, including the majority of its practice squad.

Wide receivers Corey Fuller, Carlin Isles, Patrick Edwards and Cody Wilson all received deals, along with running back Steven Miller and defensive tackles Xavier Proctor and Jimmy Saddler-McQueen.

All were on the practice squad this season.

The Lions also signed two kickers, Giorgio Tavecchio and John Potter, and linebacker Jon Morgan.

Morgan was with the Lions in training camp before being released. Tavecchio was brought in during the massive kicker tryout late in the season when David Akers was struggling and Potter spent some time with the Redskins this season.

Akers, by the way, is an unrestricted free agent.
