Lions add a couple undrafted rookie free agents to training camp roster

Posted by ttwentyman on August 1, 2012 – 9:52 pm

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.

    IS AVR IL IN SIGHT? HAS HE BEEN SEEN?
    HE IS AN IMPORTANT SPOKE IN THE WHEEL TO SUCCESS.

    AVRIL LEARN AN EXPENSIVE LESSON FROM ME. DO NOT BE TOO SELF CENTERED OR GREEDY. “THE MAN” TOOK IT AWAY FROM ME.
    “HE” ALSO CAN “TAKE IT’ AWAY FROM YOU, IN MANY WAYS.

    USE YOUR GOD GIVEN TALENT. SIGN ON THE DOTTED LINE AND PRACTICE WITH YOUR TEAM MATES.

    SEE YOU ALL AT THE SUPERBOWL.

    Tim,
    Losing faith/confidence in Gunther Cunningham. This gray format, where they move Suh and Fairley to ends and move ends inside—stupid–tell Cunningham I said so. When he did it last year, Suh and others looked uncomfortable. It didn’t work-what a waste–trying to be cute. Suh doesn’t move like an end–we waste him out there. It’s a joke. Also, his confidence in A. Barry was perplexing….the guy gave too much cushion and first downs were achieved consistently by going after him/under him on 3rd down. Free safety position is a big question–the guy really stunk last year–he is a former corner–safety is so much different– and Delmas won’t make 16 games–this we knew when we drafted him. Hill is used too much in rotation…he is a goal-line type player and terrible on passing downs–why have him in rotation?
    This defense will let us down this year….Schwartz gives too much leeway to Cunningham. Get a new d-coordinator or ensure Cunningham addresses some new evaluations of the talent back there. The game has passed him by.

    Easy there Tommy K. I know your “years of pro football experiance” is hard to contain but think about this. Remember those 3 or 4 games last year when we came back in the 2nd half? The defence held the opponents to practically nothing while Matthew,. Calvin and company realeased their magic. Your honor, ladies and gentlemen of the Jury ” I rest my case “

    At Tom K. : I actually like what the Lions are doing. They have been building a new and great identity as a football team. We’re starting to understand how the Lion’s play football. It’s style. Until the defensive sets become an issue, I would think we keep a cool head. We watch… Yet, I’m sure coach will make a change if needed.
