After a preseason performance that had coach Jim Schwartz seething, the Lions are calling in reinforcements.
The Lions have signed linebacker Rocky McIntosh to a one-year deal, a league source told PFT.
McIntosh worked out with the Lions last month but didn’t sign at the time. Perhaps the preseason performance against the Browns made Detroit decide it was time to bring in someone who could bolster the defense.
The 30-year-old McIntosh played in all 16 games for the Rams last year, starting nine. Prior to last year he spent six seasons in Washington.
