The Lions have added a couple undrafted rookie free agents to the training camp roster with the signings of guard Pat Boyle (Temple) and defensive tackle Tracy Robertson (Baylor).
Boyle was a first-team All-Mid American Conference honoree last year as a tackle. He was with the Lions earlier this offseason but was released when the team signed long snapper Matt Camilli.
Robertson totaled 23 tackles and led Baylor with 4.5 sacks and four quarterback hurries last season. Robertson signed with the Texans after the draft but was later released.
In an interesting twist, the Lions released Camilli to make room for Boyle on the 90-man training camp roster. The team released defensive tackle Michael Cosgrove (Idaho) to make room for Robertson.
