Signings Heating Up As Camp Approaches
Wilson's contract is believed to be for around $1.5 million with a $575,000 signing bonus. The former Stanford star is expected to compete for a backup role on the team with incumbent corners Andre' Goodman and Chris Cash.
Orlovsky's three-year contract believed to be for slightly less than $1 million. The former UConn standout will grab the No. 3 developmental quarterback position now that the team has a strong backup in free agent signee Jeff Garcia. Orlovsky has shown the ability to grasp the playbook and seemed to be comfortable taking snaps in camp and exhibited a strong throwing arm in drills.
Still to be signed are a pair of University of Southern California Trojans, second-round pick Shaun Cody, a defensive lineman who could challenge for a starting position and wide receiver Mike Williams, who is expected to be in the starting lineup for the team on opening day. While signing the pair in time for Thursday could be difficult, Lions chief operating officer Tom Lewand has an outstanding track record of getting players in on time for training camp.
Detroit worked out former New England corner Ty Law for the second time this offseason on Monday.
Law is coming off a foot injury which sidelined him for nine regular season games, the playoffs and the Super Bowl. Six teams including the Lions are reportedly interested in his services with the New York Jets and Detroit considered the front runners.
