The Lions signed Oklahoma safety Sam Proctor to a free agent contract following his tryout this weekend, according to his agent Bill Parise.
Proctor (6-2, 222) obviously did enough to impress Lions coaches this weekend and will transition right into the offseason training program with the other rookie draft picks and free agents.
Proctor was a mostly a backup at Oklahoma with 13 starts in 53 games. He ended his career with 103 tackles.
The Lions have brought in veteran free agent safeties O.J. Atogwe, Chris Crocker and Sean Jones this offseason. The Lions are certainly trying to bolster the talent and depth on that unit.
The Lions still have room for one more signing before they get to the maximum 90 allowed on the roster.
