Detroit quickly found a replacement at linebacker for Zack Follett.
The team agreed to terms Wednesday with Bobby Carpenter, according to the Detroit Free Press. Carpenter spent time with St. Louis, Miami, and Detroit last year.
The well traveled former Dallas Cowboy first-round pick provides depth for Detroit at linebacker, where they also added Stephen Tulloch and Justin Durant this offseason.
Everyone is picking the Lions as a sleeper, but they have two huge questions. Matthew Stafford has to prove he can stay healthy, and the back seven on defense has to prove they can at least be competent.
