The Lions are set to add a pair of linebackers from outside the organization in free agency and they announced Wednesday that they are also keeping one of their own from hitting the open market.

The team announced that Nick Bellore has agreed to a new contract. No terms were disclosed.

Bellore made two starts on defense last season, but only played 106 snaps as a linebacker overall. The bulk of his playing time came on special teams and he also caught a touchdown pass on one of his 13 snaps on offense. Bellore, who has also played for the Jets and 49ers, finished the year with 13 tackles.

The Lions are expected to sign linebackers Devon Kennard and Christian Jones when free agency opens on Wednesday afternoon. They’ve also re-signed cornerback Nevin Lawson and safety Tavon Wilson.

  1. Double yawn. Bob Quinn’s poster child for free agents in Akeem Spence. Very average and unexceptional. The 3 other NFC North teams are ascending while Detroit wallows like a water buffalo stuck in mud. Quinn’s draft picks the past couple years have been largely forgettable as well. Just not seeing Quinn’s eye for talent.

    If you were paying attention maybe you’d realize that the reason we’re doing very little in free agency is that we don’t have much cap space and that Quinn has actually drafted quite well

    Please name a team that has spent big on free agents from outside the organization and won anything. I’d rather stick to the plan than be the Washington Redskins and sign the top free agents over and over only to have 80% of them be a bust.
