Vinny Ciurciu staying with the Lions

Linebacker Vinny Ciurciu has done the free agency thing before.  Three years ago, he jumped from Carolina to Minnesota.

Last year, he was dumped by Minnesota, and he eventually landed in Detroit, appearing in nine games.

Whatever he did, he did enough to get another shot.  Per a league source, the unrestricted free agent has signed a one-year deal to return.
