Continuing what feels like an all-Detroit day, we bring you this exciting news: The Lions announced they have signed free-agent receiver Ronald Curry and fullback Terrelle Smith to one-year contracts.

Curry and Smith both visited Detroit earlier this week. Both players should be available for the Lions' mandatory minicamp, which opens Monday.

Curry will get a chance to compete for the Lions' No. 3 receiver position behind Calvin Johnson and Bryant Johnson. Smith will compete with Jerome Felton for the top fullback job. Last year's starting fullback, Moran Norris, departed via free agency.
