Linebacker Nick Bellore played his college ball at Central Michigan and he’ll return to the state to continue his NFL career in 2017.

The Lions announced on Monday that they have signed Bellore.

Bellore spent the last two seasons with the 49ers and saw his most extensive work as a defensive player last season. Bellore had been a special teams stalwart since entering the league with the Jets in 2011, but made the first 10 defensive starts of his career in 2016. He finished the year with 83 tackles, a sack, an interception and a forced fumble.

The Lions have also signed Paul Worrilow as a free agent this offseason and released veteran DeAndre Levy after the veteran missed 26 games over the last two seasons.

    Geez Whiz! The Lions are desperate. At least Levy doesn’t have to deal with the shame and embarrassment of being on the Lions.
    This guys a MORON. The lowly Lions have finished better in the standing (over the Vikings) 5 of the last 7 years.

    Levy was good when healthy, but he’s not, so we moved on. This signing is Belichekian, an unknown linebacker who is a beast on special teams and graded out better than the average linebackers last season. Lets see how this one plays out and watch the Vikings sink to the basement of the NFC North.

  2. The lowly Lions also have two playoff losses in those 7 years and only one playoff win (1991) since 1957.

    You clearly need to understand the reputation of the Lions and the NFCN a little bit better. Just breathe man, you’ll be ok…..

  3. We’re letting too many of our solid LB’s go. This can’t be good…..

    Hopefully Lynch has a plan in place…
