The Lions, lying in wait for the new year...
On the same day the Detroit Lions let go of cornerback Chris Houston and agreed to a contract with tight end Eric Ebron, it also made one more move to keep its roster at 90 players.
The Lions signed rookie offensive tackle Bryce Quigley from San Diego State.
Quigley, from Apple Valley, California and Granite Hills High School in the High Desert of the state, started games in all four years of his San Diego State career. He spent his first two years with the Aztecs at tight end, where he caught 15 passes for 130 yards and a touchdown before moving to left tackle.
He started the last 26 games of his career at left tackle for San Diego State.
Now, he enters a competition with fellow undrafted free agent Cornelius Lucas and J.B. Shugarts for a potential fourth tackle role with the Lions this fall.
