Lions Sign Reserve OL Joe Dahl to a Two-Year Deal

In a summer that has been dominated by stories of contract holdouts from Darius Slay and Snacks Harrison, Detroit has given its first extension of training camp to … reserve offensive lineman Joe Dahl, Kyle Meinke of Mlive reports.

The extension is for two years, according to a source. NFL Network was first to report the news.

Dahl was taken in the fifth round of GM Bob Quinn’s first draft class, back in 2016, and has played just 251 offensive snaps since. That might make him seem like an odd choice for a multi-year extension, but the Lions really value versatility under Quinn and Matt Patricia, and now they’re putting their money where their mouth is.

Lions Release Veteran RB Theo Riddick

USA Today Sports

The Lions want to upgrade the run game in 2018 and have it more as a part of the team’s offense, but made somewhat of a surprising roster move at the position on Saturday.

Riddick was a very good third down back for the Lions, as he put up an average of 62 catches per year over the last four seasons with Detroit.

The team added C.J. Anderson and Ty Johnson this offseason, so expect one of them to take the workload that would have gone to Riddick.

The 28-year-old caught a career-high 80 passes for 697 yards in 2015.
