Lions Sign Cody; Williams Close
Cody, 6-4, 310, wrapped up his four-year stellar career with at USC with two national championships, finishing with 130 tackles, 21 sacks, three forced fumbles and five blocked field goals. The stalwart defensive lineman is expected to compete for a starting position and, at the very least, could be used to spell defensive tackle Dan Wilkinson. The team could also use him at defensive end.
Cody's deal will extend four-years and is worth a reported $4.4 million. No further information was immediately available.
Cody will report on time to Friday's morning and inaugural session, leaving former collegiate teammate -- and 10th overall pick -- Mike Williams, technically, a holdout.
Williams, whose agent has been in Detroit negotiating since Thursday, is reportedly close on a deal.
