Lions to add Rocky Boiman

The Detroit Lions are adding a veteran linebacker to the mix.

A league source tells PFT that the Lions will sign free agent linebacker Rocky Boiman.

Boiman played six games for the Steelers last year. He has previously played for the Chiefs, Colts and Titans.

Boiman, who played for Lions head coach Jim Schwartz when Schwartz was the Titans’ defensive coordinator, worked out for the Lions this summer and was mentioned as a possible replacement for linebacker Jordon Dizon, who was lost for the season with a knee injury.
