Oday Aboushi's one-year deal with the Lions is worth $1,187,500. He has a base salary of $1.05 million, a signing bonus of $137,500 and $162,500 of his base salary is guaranteed. The Lions incur a cap hit of $887,500 for Aboushi in 2020.

The Lions have agreed to terms with WR Geronimo Allison, last with Green Bay. He has appeared in 46 career games with 89 receptions for 1,045 yards and six touchdowns. He's going to likely push Marvin Hall for the No. 4 receiver spot. Detroit is stocking up on depth at receiver and other spots.

The Lions have agreed to terms with LB Elijah Lee on a one-year deal, a source confirmed to ESPN. First reported by the Detroit News. Lee is a key special teams player from San Francisco, where he played at least 40 percent of special teams snaps every year in the league. It'll be interesting to see what his signing might mean for Jason Cabinda or Steve Longa — two of the Lions' depth linebackers from last season.

The Lions agreeing to terms with linebacker Reggie Ragland, as reported by Jeremy Fowler, gives Detroit even more depth at inside linebacker — a spot potentially in flux. Ragland played in 42 games for Kansas City — starting 32 of them — and has 160 career tackles with 2.5 sacks. He's not really a special teams presence (just 40 career snaps) so he could be a rotational backer for the Lions. He's never played more than 50 percent of snaps in a season.

More than ever, Patriots ties run deep with Lions

It's possible Detroit will have five defensive starters who were former Patriots. From playbook to culture, the Lions are betting on the Patriot Way.

Confirmed a one-year deal for WR Geremy Davis with the Lions. First reported by the Detroit News. Davis played college football at Connecticut and was with the Chargers the last three seasons. He's primarily a special teams player, playing less than eight percent offensive snaps every season of his career. He played 24 percent of special teams snaps last season with Los Angeles.

The Lions re-signed OL Oday Aboushi to a one-year deal on Tuesday. He's likely to compete for an open guard spot vacated by Graham Glasgow potentially with Russell Bodine, Beau Benzschawel and any other players they bring in. It is the most open position in Detroit's starting lineup at the moment.
